My wife tried to renew my CAA (Canadian equivalent to AAA) membership and they told her that I couldn't be a member anymore since my PM is rated as a commercial vehicle.

Any feedback from AAA members?

You can get good towing insurance from Good Sam Club as a camper/RV or even from your regular car insurance provider. I've never had much use for AAA myself. I get the same 10% discount from AARP. I've found the you can get similar discounts and deals from just about anywhere on anything if you look around or ask. They do have good mapping but with GPS that's almost unimportant these days. AAA is just a way to drain your money from you in my opinion for what it's worth (not much, I'll agree)

We called AAA after we bought our van. They could not give us a clear answer on if our low roof 136 would qualify for service. Seems AAA service varies from area to area and service providers could decline to service or tow it.

Looking into AARP, Allstate and Good Sams club instead. Anyone else have experience with this?

You can usually add towing and road service on your vehicle policy for well under $100 a year. I gave up on AAA many years ago as they, like AARP, are more interested in the insurance and other things they sell than their members. I have kept up my AARP membership as it's so cheap and because of the discounts I receive for being a member but I would never consider buying any of their junk insurance policies or other rubbish they push on unknowledgable seniors at inflated costs.

If you have or can insure your Promaster as an RV you will have no problem getting all the towing/breakdown coverage you wish for cheap. Even Good Sam (which has turned into another scam outfit) will cover you and all your vehicles for about $125 a year as I recall. I got rid of them when I got my Promaster and so far I've been happy with my RV policy from Progressive at well under $400 a year including full coverage and towing.

Don't give up just because of AAA.

There are many ways to get RV insurance, even tho you live in MA, try checking with an RV insurance specialist. As a long time MA resident (my first 60 years of life) I know the problems and roadblocks you can encounter with insurance in MA but google really is your friend!

Our Promaster is still being "built out" but we will pick it up soon. However, we have been with AAA for 20 years. Last summer our Roadtrek broke down at Devil's Tower Nat'l Monument. AAA towed it 90 miles to Spearfish. Our cost: zero (excluding the tip I gave the driver). In fact, the tow required 2 vehicles: one for the Roadtrek and one for my son and I to ride in. I guess we should check to be sure that the Promaster is covered under our policy, but I will be surprised if it is not. AAA has been good to us many times.

When we married, MrNomer was between jobs. The one thing he had to offer me was his AAA policy. Given that I was driving my Mercedes 220D, it was in fact quite a benefit. I lost track of the number of times they came to start that thing. Then there was the Vanagon we bought soon thereafter…
