and the other side of the coin.....I am very happy with RCI and with TPUs (and OGS). Fees going up? yes, annoying. My electric bill goes up every year too. I am sitting in a room overlooking the Bellagio fountain for $58 / night (all in - with the fee) on a great exchange. Prime ski week? I am still under $1000 a week for 1 or 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, etc. If you have the time/desire to learn the system, it CAN work great. Best resource every is this board.
