Most difficult Marriott properties to trade into in July?

I have a confirmed Marriott exchange through II in July 2012 and need to cancel and re-trade for the week before. Have been calling for weeks trying for a re-trade, but no availability. My other option is to cancel and take a replacement week to put in a request. According to most II reps, the replacement week is then considered a non-Marriott and when making a request, I now need to give 3 resorts or 3 dates?!! What Marriotts are nearly impossible to trade into during early July??? I would request 2 of those and the one I really want. Any suggestions??

I think the Lahaina/Napili Towers on Maui and the new Kauai Lagoons development on Kauai would be really tough exchanges to get in July.

Most difficult Marriott July trade by far is oceanwatch. No other Marriott week outside of say the London resort is more difficult to get. Owners of summer oceanwatch weeks can't even trade back in. This has been my experience at least.

Newport Coast also has a reputation for being tough for the entire summer season. Over the years I've seen enough successful exchanges that I'd be leary of accidentally getting it as an exchange if you're wanting the impossible.
