A friend asked me to rent a week for them at Vacation Villas at Parkway, in Orlando, Florida. I had points left over from Wyndham for 2015 and could not use, so I had recently transferred them into RCI. I also had some points available in RCI, so I first went to the RCI points site, and the week I was looking at was 27,200 points thru RCI. I then went into RCI via Wyndham, and the exact same unit, same date, same resort, etc., was 80,000 points. This is a huge difference. I need some help understanding why there is such a big difference between RCI and Wyndham in points value. The person I talked to at Wyndham could not really answer my question.

Thanks for you help

I would think that it is because you are using 2 different sets of points. When you go through the Wyndham site, all the point costs are in Wyndham points. (even though you deposited them to RCI) Going straight to the RCI points site, you are getting prices in a different currency, RCI points. Like the difference between euros and dollars.

Think of this like the US dollar and the Singaporean dollar. They are both called "dollar" but they both mean very different things. Some things are cheaper in Singapore than in the US, even if you could convert from one currency to the other, and vice versa.

For that particular resort, an RCI "Last Call" might be a less expensive option. It's a very large resort and still in sales, so there is a LOT of inventory available. I would research Last Calls and compare the costs.
