RCI or II ?

I own a week at Vistana Resort the Palms section, Which company RCI or II has a better trade for Vistana Resort. I don't belong to SVN

I'm wondering if I should renew my RCI membership or try II.

In 2003 when I first bought my week (resale of course) I signed up with II, They told me I couldnt trade for any other resort in Orlando more than once.
So I went with RCI and have pretty much been able to trade for what I wanted, but would love to see what II offers.

With II you will have a 3 day priority for other Starwood resorts so most of the owners here use II. See the exchanging article in the Owner resources sticky at the top of the page for more info.
