Pretty much. It was a fairly steep grade dropping outside the Las Vegas area. Lucky nobody was fueling up in the bay I picked to pull into cause I would have nailed them. As it was I almost ran into a brick wall. The tow wasn't the smallest truck I'd been towed with but not exactly what I had asked for.

With premier you are definitely good - up to 200 miles towing.

The gray area is on the Classic and Plus memberships where the "provided they are not loaded, altered or constructed in such a way as to make servicing the vehicle hazardous" clause comes into play.. and allows for various interpretations.

^^^ What Robb just said. Like I posted, I've yet to have a problem with AAA Premier plan in Nor-Cal, Central Cal or Nevada. Being I've tested the waters so much I'm not worried. I had luck with Good Sam as well but only used them once. I also never used FMCA but kept it as a backup as it was only 35 bucks a year. It might not be a bad idea having a backup if you think about it.
