Also note when your traveling most big rigs don't carry spares. They just call road service like we do.

we carry a dismounted tire in the trunk of our tow car....big tires are sometimes not easy to find or you may have to pay much more for the tire. we also have good sam road service for the tire installation.

I have had no reason to do that.
I went to Allstate RV Roadhelp from Good Sam ERS back in 1994. When GS charged $19.95 for any vehicle above the RV that you wanted covered.

In 1994 Allstate covered my MH, car, truck & motorcycle for the same price. GS didn't until a few years later. I had never even heard of Coach Net back then.
RV Roadhelp also covers any vehicle I drive be it rented or a friends vehicle.

RV Roadhelp over the years have towed a pick up truck I had twice to a shop of my choice. Came and unlocked it once.

They came and gave the MH a battery jump when it would,'t start at a gas station. They have brought me a 22.5" tire when needed. And the price was less then I paid per tire to replace the other 5.

They have arranged to send me a service truck in a area they had no service contract. I did have to pay cash for the service but Allstate was fast to reinburse me 100% of the total amount. For the service call, changing of the tire and even the disposal cost of the tire.

And I am sure they are other things they have done, that I have forgotten about.


In all of the 16 years they have also given me a FREE KOA 10% discount card. I don't usually use KOA, but over the years I have when their were no other choice in the area I wanted to stay at.

You don't need any other Allstate insurance or belong to any RV club to get RV Roadhelp.

Your experience may be different then mine with Allstate.
And there is nothing wrong with that.

But until they don't stand up to their agreement with me for service when needed. I will be renewing again next April for the 17th time.

When we bought our 2000. Winnebago Ultimate. I was a Bit concerned, Whooo no spare. the coach was new. I called around. and found out they did not Carry spare tires'. I said OK., Now as with most all insurance policys they include/offer roadside assistance, Moving on . near Las Vag. N. at about 70 Mph Tha FR. right blew out The Famed Zipper On the inner side wall As stated earlier they are quite heavy; Any after we got over the shock of that explosion under our feet and got it stopped. Which was no problem at all ;; just keep the foot OFF the brake pedal; Any way we called our insurance co; and within 10 minutes we got a call from them asking me the tire size and our exact location, Another 25 minutes we were ON THE ROAD AGAIN,,. this was returning from the Ballon fest in Albaqurqe; In 2002. Now in May of 2003 In Massula MOnt. again at 65/70 MPH. the inside Left Rear dule Blew out . To add more excitement My wife was in the bathroom at that time.. Now I have a coach moving down the hyway unsafe and my sobing wife Screeming at me about them Dammed tires;; After we got near the side of the road Stopped called our insurance. Company And got the same fantastic results; Only this time we pulled into a truck stop.That sold tires.. From the prior experiance and tire center discussions,I was informed that the Zipper blowout was a common occurance on that tire It is the RV tire, Softer side walls. Well we went up To the 295x 22.5 ,I think it is , Truck Green line X It rides a bit more Harsh But is much more stable And easier to handle.... Now I would like to leave you with this thought. Never under any cercumstances, Exeed 7 years on your tires. 3years is more realistic;; Man the tires are the foundation of your house, Don't let it crumble into the ground. I hope I didn't bore you; These were some things needed to be shared. Thanks . Life is good.
