I just purchased week 34 in August and already deposited it into II for an exchange. I tried to trade into here for many years and after not being successful I bought it. I want to list some resorts to trade in to but don't know if it will get me trades my other timeshares do not. Anyone know how good of a trader this will be since I always deposit as early as possible?

RCI gives this week 28 TPU if it's a two bedroom and 29 TPU if it's a three bedroom. This seems low to me. I know II is a completely different system, but this may help as a reference.

I agree 28 tpus is low for such a nice resort and the units are very nice

Congrats on your purchase; your week should be a strong trader in II.

The best way to gauge the value is to watch the sightings thread here on Tug. Often, the most desirable and difficult trades will be listed. If your unit can see nearly all the resorts that are not under a brand preference, then you probably have a gem. What I mean by brand/system preference is...as an example, Marriott will release available units to Marriott owners first, we independent timeshare owners don’t often see them until the preference is removed or expires.

You may already know this, but the available units listed in II are the unspoken for/leftovers, and sometimes resort released blocks of units. The strategy I employ is to put a request in for a resort I want initially, then check the II available units frequently, just in case some place more interesting catches my attention.
