Being also the owner of a 40' motorhome, I belong to the Good Sam Club which is an RV organization. They provide a services and benefits for RV owners including road insurance on my motorhome. One of the side benefits provided by membership is that they will tow ANY of my vehicles to the nearest qualified service centre.
I recently had the task of calling on their services. I was on my way to the dealership in Harlingen, TX when my car died. On the freeway, in rush hour!They were there in less than 30 minutes. A brand new flat bed and a friendly crew. Two weeks later, I had to call on them again to pick-up my Ducati as it was dead. This time, TWO flat beds showed up and had me at the dealership in no time. Seems one driver was teaching the other how to load and secure a bike.
You may not own an RV, but I'm posting this as information for any members out there who may or are contemplating buying one. I understand from the tow truck drivers that they respond to these types of calls from several organizations which most likely provide the same services, just under different banners. I know that mine will tow a 30,000 lb behemoth as easily as a 300 lb Duc! I just hope I won't have to use them on the return trip home.
