You all have so much collective wisdom I know someone can share some great advise. A few months ago I traded my DSV-I Studio for Ko Olina 2 BR, arrival date coming up in 7 days. I‘m pretty proud of myself getting such a great trade. Unfortunately there was an “incident” on the tennis court earlier this week... I tore my meniscus and can barely walk. I see available inventory in II for Apr/May so I thought I would do a quick easy trade, but not so fast. It only gives me a window of 30 days. Anyone know what is restricting the date and is there any way around it?

it's because it's 7 days away, there is this "penalty" so to speak when you cancel or retrade so close in. As far as options, I am not sure but others will chime in most likely.

I've made that trade before as well with DSV2 studio! It is a great trade.
