Started out on my first semi-long trip in my GMC 3500 shortie. Heading to the first goat show of the season, following a friend whose towing 11 goats in her trailer (I was supposed to be hauling my own trailer but it got a flat in a brand new tire before I even left the driveway - not a good weekend, to say the least). I broke down about an hour from home in the middle of nowhere. I have AAA but woe and behold, they don't tow busses. So.... who to call, who to call? Luckily, the friend I was with had a friend in the towing business so he came and we continued on. Another friend recommended The Good Sam Club and I've been on their web site but don't see anything about converted skoolie coverage. Hence my question here... what service do you use? What's been your experience with getting tow companies to you for help? Who do you recommend and who's on your "do not use" list? Looking for pretty much anything you got... it was NIGHTMARE to say the least. Can't imagine what I'd have done if I were towing my 250 lbs buck... TIA

I have the Good Samís towing coverage. I havenít used it yet however asked the question about towing a Skoolie and the guy said they cover all. It also covers the vehicle youíre in even if your with a friend in their car or truck. It sounded good and for around $100, I thought it was a steal because those big tow trucks are expensive as heck to pay for out of pocket. Again, I havenít had to use it yet.....

AAA will certainly tow your bus or RV or your motorcycle. You need to sign up for AAA Premier. Just paid mine and it is $202.00 a year. At least that is what I paid in CA.
200 mile tow and up to 4 more 100 mile tows in a membership year.
Plus a lot of other perks.

Just looked into it, premier is $150 in Wisconsin. Not a bad deal, also kicks in 3 days after payment
