You are lucky they even came out. As far as I know, the AA cover doesn't normally extend to anything but the very smallest motorhomes, unless you get the special deal through the CCC scheme. I forget what they call it.

I've got cover through Safeguard with AA, 5 tonne Hymer, had a transmission failure on the way to Dover, contract recovery company came out collected motorhome and us, taken to their depot, they gave us a courtesy car to get us home and brought the motorhome to us after the Christmas holiday.
