      Chick & Debby March 8 I had Good Sam Emergency Road Service for 23 years.  I fired them about 3 years ago as the service got SO BAD.  I have had Coach-Net and now with SafeRIde through FMCA.  I CAN NOT and do not recommend any of the Good Sam products as they ha...  more

      K&R Miller March 8 I've had their road service for several years now and they're great.  They've been there for my truck, trailer, and motorcycle, a couple of times 40 miles or more from the nearest service center.  One Sunday in rural Nebraska on a Sunday evening...  more

      Dottie & Victor Hagood March 8 Yes, we have had their roadside assistance service for 8 years.  Have used it  twice.  On both occasions, we were very happy with the service. Service exceeded expectations.  We certainly recommend this service. 
    • Larry & Judy B
      Susan & Richard March 10 had their roadside assistance for over a decade now.  Needed it three times and every time we were well taken care of.  one was a tow for our Class A that was almost 100 miles to an authorized Allison service center.

      Mark & Jean March 16 Yes we just got it!

      Tim & Susie Zich February 24 Welcome to the group and Good Sam. We're Life Members and have belonged since 1992. Full timers now. Look for Pilot/Flying J to fill up our DP because they are reliable, easy to get into and out of and it saves us $$. Hope you have great adventures.😀

      Andy & Maureen T January 5 We too are excited by Good Sam and their service unit.. Our granddaughter was using our car and had to call them. Help was there within 20-minutes with a very positive attitude.

      Five-Star rating from us.

      John and Liz Riebe January 5 We have used them 3 times without any problems! The most recent was to tow our truck to the dealer.

      Susan & Richard December 29, 2018 Look at the small rechargeable battery packs.  Mine is no bigger than a brick.  I have started large diesel pickup trucks with it. Well worth the price.

      Andy & Maureen T December 30, 2018 You are  enough absolutely right. They hold enough charge for multiple jumps.

      Jcf0527 December 31 We’ve had Good Sam for years and used them several times - for lockout service as well as towing.  Yes there is a wait of some kind - but there was with AAA as well.  Otherwise my experience has been very good.

      Inactive Member December 11, 2018 Sorry for your ordeal. But we have read many reviews like this about good sams. So we have never used them nor would we. They will probably go down with camping world. Safe travels and hope to see you guys around the campfire 🔥

      Bob & Shirl Thompson December 12, 2018 I'm thinking the issue is with the Good Sam rep and not Good Sam themselves. I have had Roadside Assistance for many years now and one time I called them, they sent out two tow trucks (for truck AND camper) then towed both vehicles to the Ford dealership....  more

        K&R Miller January 5 On the other hand, I've always had great experience with Good Sam.  Seems to depend on when, where, and which contractor is assigned.  What did you do to work with their parent company, either during or after your ordeal?  Too bad you had t...  more

      John and Rocki October 16, 2018 We stayed in Southlake RV Park over Labor Day week for a motorcycle rally. We didn’t really like the park. It’s old, has narrow and poor interior roads, and small, very tight sites. They told us they could accommodate our 43’ Class A. We barely fit. We ma...  more
