RCI Deposit question!

Hi everyone! I have a 3 br lockoff unit at Carriage Place in MO. I'm about to deposit my 09 week and wanted to find out if I deposit it as a 3 br unit, will I get a better trade value (more trade options) than if I split it into the lockoff units?

The folks at grand crowne say it doesn't matter whether I'm searcing for an exchange on a 1 br or a 3 br, but I thought it DID make a difference.

If anyone can shed some light on this I'd appreciate it! If it truly will not give me higher quality trade by depositing as a 3 BR then why would I ever deposit it as one unit?

Thanks all!!

Typically the bigger deposit would pull more available exchanges. If there is an owner of a similar week here, they can share their experiences. Otherwise, I'd try it both ways to see which works better for your own situation. If you travel off season to less desirable locations, locking it off might get you perfectly acceptable exchanges. If you travel peak season to high demand locations, I'd deposit it as one unit.
