  1. My only issue is with their towing. You only get towed to the "nearest place that will work on your vehicle". AAA lets us choose anywhere up to 200 miles. Quite often, the "nearest place" is not somewhere you'd want to go.

  2. Agree 100% and often more expensive for repairs.

  4. Does AAA offer an RV coverage option? Including towing? I haven't seen it.

      Yes,they do. I have had their RV coverage for over 25 years. Never had any problems.

    Yes, AAA RV coverage towed my dually (on a rollback) and 37' tag along over 60 miles past dozens of shops in Charlotte, NC to my house. Very pleased. Easily a $400-500 tow.
