Roadside Assistance Designed for RV Owners

June 6 2011 | kelly

Specialist service providers offer much more

Most van owners know that roadside assistance makes good sense. Going on holidays with the knowledge you’ll get help when you need it brings essential peace of mind.

But is your van covered, or just your car? Does it matter who is driving? And can they tow your van on the spot?


We’ve found that specialist roadside assistance packages offer better value to RV owners.


Here are some scenarios you should think about:

  • Can the rescue vehicle tow your car or 4WD? If not, how long will you have to wait in blistering heat or driving rain until you’re rescued?
  • What will happen to your van? Will it get towed too – or will you have to leave it by the side of the road for days on end, along with all your gear and supplies?
  • And what if you’ve lent your van to a family member or friend? Are you covered? If not, how much will it cost to be properly protected?

Many van owners don’t think past the state-based motoring clubs when choosing their roadside assistance. But if you look a little closer, you may be surprised to learn that there are well-established and very professional alternatives that offer superior benefits for RV owners and their families.

Motoring 24-7 is an RV Community Club Partner and part of a group that has been providing 24-Hour, 7-Day National Roadside Assistance services to motorists (and a wide range of organisations and businesses) since 1993.

Here’s a summary of what members get:

    » National coverage and a service network via 1,000 roadside assistance service providers. 

    » If you’re in distress you can expect a rescue vehicle to arrive inside 30 minutes within metropolitan areas and major regional centers.

    » Direct access to a real person who will dispatch the rescue vehicle directly, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.

    » Unlimited emergency call outs.

    » Membership covers not only your registered vehicle but the RV you’re towing, as well.

    » A single membership covers the nominated vehicle, regardless of who is driving, their location or the time of breakdown.

    » The dispatched roadside service vehicle can tow your rig. This means you won’t be left waiting by the side of the road until a tow truck arrives – and your rig and worldly possessions will be safe and travelling with you.

    » No Callout Bonus – If the service is not used after two consecutive years, discounts apply to renewals.

    » Free extras cover – In the event of a major mechanical failure, assistance with costs on Rental Car*, Accommodation*, Onward Travel*, Transporting Vehicle*

    » Ambulance Cover* – In the event of an accident involving the covered vehicle, and the driver or their immediate family require the services of an ambulance as a result of that accident.

* Conditions apply

  6. I am about to get a new fully Comprehensive policy for my AVAN Ovation with Ken Tame, but his Roadside Assist at $180, is nowhere near as good as RACV TOTAL CARE .
    I am in NSW and RACV wont cover me if I dont live in Victoria, so can you suggest anything
