Hello, so I've been searching the forum on this resort and found out that their units vary drastically from one to another.

My questions are.....
1. What are the different types of units?
2. Does the Timbers have the same type of units as CMV?
3. How would you know what your getting when making an exchange through RCI.
4. Is it better to exchange or rent from an owner
5. If you rent from an owner, on average, how much would it cost for a 2 bdrm in August?

Thanks so much!!!

If you are getting a two bedroom, make sure it has two bathrooms, that Will help you avoid the cottages and cabins, which are very small
