The most likely answer is. CWA owners are paying into a second reserve fund that the CWA board setup for CWA itself. That’s on top of the reserve funds paid to the individual resorts.
The maintence fees and associated fees of the resort are in the CWA fee(s) to the Owners. A reserve fund can be used for a lot of things depending how it is set up. A good possible example would be special assessments if they get hit with many many many of them due weather etc. Or unexpected costs that are incurred such as lawsuit losses that are not insured etc.
Your usual rambling just to post something

My Wyndham site shows the following under my Club Wyndham Access contract (note: CWA contract is referred to as a HOA and the fee shows up as this HOA fee):


Total HOA

  • Maintenance Fees:
    (86,000 / 1000) * $5.49 = $472.14
  • Reserve Fund:
    (86,000 / 1000) * $0.11 = $9.46
  • Total HOA Fee:
    (86,000 / 1000) * $5.60 = $481.60
  • Program Fee
    (86,000 / 1000) * $0.57 = $49.02
  • Annual Fee:
    $481.60 + $49.02 = $530.62
  • * Monthly Fee:
    $530.62 / 12 = $44.22
  • Contract Type
    Undivided Interest (UDI)
  • Points Owned
    86,000
  • Payment Frequency

You know in at least the two prior years lots of people posted lots of Maintenance Fee
information about lots of the resorts. I know I found that incredibly helpful as I
was shopping the secondary market to buy my first Wyndham points. In fact if you look at the sticky
for 2017 Maintenance fees you'll see a very long and detailed list. I don't know who put that
all together in one post, but before that it was a different thread where TUG members would
list their new MF's just like in this thread I'm posting in.

I'm posting this to bump it to the front and to ask any TUG members who are so inclined
to add to this thread by posting their 2018 MF's if they are not already listed. I know
it's a big help for potential buyers and also for current small owners (like me) who
might be looking to slowly increase their total points. If you want to do this I would
suggest posting in the same format as the first 2 posts in the thread. That format seems
thorough and makes it easy to compare apples to apples.

I don't have last year's numbers handy, but what was in the sticky for 2017 seems high. Since the hurricanes devastated this resort, I'm not looking forward to 2019.

What determines whether you are charged the Program Fee with or without Club Partners?

If you purchased from Wyndham, you get plus partners and have to pay an additional couple cents per 1000 points on the program fee. If you purchase resale you don’t

Great thanks for the clarification.

Is the minimum non-Plus fee of $131 applied per contract or per account? When maintenance is quoted by a seller, is it typically quoted without program component, at the $0.56/1K point level, or at the $131 minimum level (assuming owner only has 1 contract).

Yes. So if you are purchasing a resale 200k point with a maintenance of $5.60 per k. The total maintenance fee would be $1120 plus $131.00 program fee since 200k would be below the minimum. Every seller will be different different based on what they own. For instance. If you were to be looking at a 126k CWA contract from someone where that was their only contract. Assuming they quoted the correct amount, which is not always the case. CWA is currently $5.76 so a 126k would be $725.76 Plus the $131 program fee, if they bought it resale, or $151 program fee, if they bought it direct. For a total of $856.76 or 876.76. But if the person is selling one contract in a larger account. The amount they would quote might be $796.32 for resale or $798.84 for a Wyndham purchase. You can't always trust what the seller quotes so you need to do the research and know what the maintenance is likely to be before you bid. Also you should ask the seller for a onwership printout from Wyndham.

I own at Fairfield Bay and my MF's are much lower that this (I posted on the previous page $3.89, 1.66, .14 Total $5.69). I took my figures straight off my statement. Does anyone know why we would have such a big difference in MF? Is it because converted fixed weeks are assessed differently? I have a week 43 which has been converted to 154,000 points. According to the points chart this would equate to a 2 BR Plus.

I'm very puzzled by the whole converted fixed week type of contract. Anyone have any insight into this?

By the way, I only bought it for the points, so I'm not concerned about the different ARP system with this purchase, I'm just curious about the difference in the MF's posted here.

The situation with converted fixed weeks is that all 2 bedroom units, for instance, will have the same maintenance fees, but they were issued different numbers of points based on season. A prime season converted fixed week may have some of the best MFs in the system, while an off season converted fixed week may have some of the worst.

I think the extra reserve fund for CWA started in 2017. I would be curious to know the reason for the addition.

Last year, it took me like three hours to create a spreadsheet for these, because we had a ton of people to were kind enough to provide us with their MF info. Also, I'm no excel expert, so that probably didn't help. Think we can get that to happen again? You provide the info, I'll provide the spreadsheet. Deal?
