Great, just posted up an ad in the exchange section. Didn't even realize there was this area on Tug.

Anytime while I do think it is super cool the site has a free exchange network I think in some instances I would avoid it.

For example I own a unit that gets me 92 TPUs annually with RCI.

More times often than not I know I will get a low one for one offer on the exchange section as far as offers go.

Obviously this is just my opinion again I am not complaining and glad this is offered on the site.

There are times when RCI works well, and they are times when a private exchange works better.

For instance, if (like the OP) you have a desirable timeshare to trade, and the timeshare that you want to trade into never gets deposited in RCI - a private exchange is likely to be more successful.

If however, you have a timeshare worth a lot of points, and you want to use it for exchanges into resorts that are plentiful on RCI, then RCI is the way to go.

One size does not fit all...

May I ask which unit gets that many TPUs annually? I have deposired my SDO into RCI and have traded for HGVC Kingsland but I only got less than half the number of tpu for my 2br SDO.
