Need some advice:

Trying to unload Week 52, 2008 (late, I know), so is my best bet with RCI or II?
What happens if I bank with them, but they don't find someone to use? Do I still get a trade option to use in over course of 2009? Or is it a lost week?

I have traded on my own with fellow resort owners (renting unit or trading weeks), renting over ebay and other random ways. I am at the point, where I just might "let it go" pay the MF this year and not use it. A totally sunk cost. However, I was recently revitalized with the idea of the timeshare with the thought of finally trading for another resort. Brillant, huh? This just might give this an whole new life -- new places and new dates!

Bottom line - looking for advice on best move for this late in the game and also a better understanding on what happens if RCI/II are unable to unload my week.

Anyone have bottom line for chosing between RCI and II? Read a lot on this site about them, but keep getting swayed towards one and then the other.

Welcome to TUG! :hi:

Depends on which exchange company your resort is affiliated with. You have to use the affiliated company, or an independent TS Exchange Co.

What happens if I bank with them, but they don't find someone to use? Do I still get a trade option to use in over course of 2009? Or is it a lost week?
It doesn't matter what happens to the week you deposit - you still get to use it for an exchange.

Tell us what resort it is and we can probably tell you more.
