RCI Survey

I was just sent an email from RCI asking me if I still owned at Paniolo Greens, and if so, they asked me to take a survey.

Below are the questions asked:

With whom do you travel most often?
My spouse
I usually travel alone
Other Adults
My immediate family (grown children)
My immediate family (young children)

Which of the following best describes your vacation ownership mentioned in this email?
I own every year
I own every other year
I own every third year

Do you own a lock-off unit (one large unit that can be split into 2 smaller units)?

Why haven't you Deposited your vacation time from this resort recently?
I am traveling to my home resort/group every year.
I'm gifting my vacation time to my family or friends.
I am not traveling at all.
I'm renting out my vacation time.
I'm using another Exchange company.
I thought I already Deposited.
I'm not sure how to Deposit my vacation time.

Now what's interesting is that RCI currently has 3 PG weeks on deposit so I don't know why they think I'm not depositing them.

Depending on the answer to the above question determines what the next question is, and would be one of the following:

Why aren't you traveling?
I am traveling, but not through my vacation ownership.
Haven't had the desire to travel
Haven't been able to take a vacation due to personal reasons (work, health, family, etc)
Unsure how to get started with vacation planning
I don't want to travel alone
Generally, I just don't have the money to travel right now
Gas/Airline prices are too high

Regarding your long term ownership plans, which of the following best describes your intentions?
I intend to pass my timeshare on to my children/grandchildren or other family.
I intend to sell my timeshare.
I don't have any long term plans at this time.
I don't own a deeded timeshare, I purchased a specified number of years (or right to use).

What other exchange company(ies) are you using? (check all that apply)
Interval International
Dial-an-Exchange (DAE)
Trading Places

Have any of you received such a survey for your timeshares?

Got ours this afternoon for our Palace Resorts ownership. Since it's an RTU system, a couple of the questions didn't make sense, and in some cases the choices provided as answers were not broad enough. But I guess they think they will learn something useful.
