I'd recommend reading the "history of ORE" page, the MROP program discription and the description of 'annual scheduling process". You'll also find the list of 50 or 60 resorts, photos.
ORE is a management company born out of the bankruptcy of Sweetwater timeshare developer. I like the fact that 13 desperate home owners' associations formed the not-for-profit type management company called ORE. They've since grown that business into managing 50 or 60 resorts. They've implemented an internal ORE Exchange program among the 35000 or so TS owners at those resorts....kind of like a miniature RCI/II. But no annual fees and just ~$70 to exchange. ORE also offers 'bonus time' for short notice vacancies they may have.
Along the way, ORE placed various timeshare weeks from the various resorts into a floating 'club-like' Homeowners' Associaiton called MultiResort Ownership Program (MROP). You can thus get a "always red" or a 'rotating red/white/blue" floating week of TS ownership in MROP. Each May, you enter the computerized annual scheduling program, select your desired week/destination(s) and 2nd/3rd/4th....20th choices and see if you get alloted those weeks by the prioritized/scheduling software. If not, MROP owners can search the online availablilty and trade within the ORE exchange. Your individual resort may be RCI and/or II affiliated in addition to the ORE exchange option.
I own a MROP Red week. I've gotten Christmas/NewYears at ski destinations 3 yrs in a row! I'm happy w/ my modest investment in MROP. I have access to 7000 TS Weeks of various unit sizes in the 60 locations....it's like I own a "floating red week"....except it also "floats as to location" as well as the week/unit. (I also own Worldmark "Points system" timeshare. MROP has some of that points-like flexiblity, except that you're fixed to weekly stays. WM is 'goldcrown/5star" and MROP is 'standard', for the most part).
Most of the ORE-managed resorts are modest/standard and a little older. But ORE is well run. Folks are happy w/ their management. M/F tend to be lower. The MROP program has around $400/yr M/F for a 2br/red.....a weighted average of the ~7000 TS weeks in the pool. MROP also transfers for just $85 (no deed to record.....a membership in a 'club-like' entitiy that holds the deeds.)
I"ve read where ORE has won the management contract for other resorts in the past 3 years that I've owned.....they could either add the resort to the list of conventional resorts, and those owners could join along in the ORE exchange (and little else change besides the mgmt co)....or ORE could propose that your resort exchange your deed(s) for an equivelent "MROP" ownership.
Hope that helps.
