Where would I have my best shot at getting a 2-BR over Memorial Day weekend at the Royal Haciendas?

I have a 2-BR 2017 Royal Sands and a 2-BR 2016 Lawrence Welk Resort. I can deposit in either II or RCI

Thoughts?

TIA

This should be an easy trade in II. We traded in there through II twice in May or June with 1BR off-season units at Club Intrawest and got 2 BRs both times. As an owner at a Royal you don't have to take the AI there (which is why we'll never exchange in again.)

Thanks - I was actually surprised I couldn't get it in an instant trade given the AI requirement for exchangers.

I can't comment on the II vs RCI but did want to comment that I rarely see 2 BR units in II. I think the majority must pay the fee to lock off and trade. Times that we have needed extra space, I either have to trade with a 2 BR unit and a bonus week or AC or rent if I want an entire villa. When I have had to trade for 2 pieces they have always accommodated me by putting me in a whole villa instead of the 2 actual pieces I traded for, but that is getting harder and harder to do with so many renters and people that don't stay Sat to Sat.

Last year there were a huge number of villas that had to be moved on Saturday, somewhere in the 50s or 60s IIRC.
