I am approaching close of escrow on an eBay purchase at RAVC. I know they have their own series of resorts members can reserve and exchange into, but I'm wondering about exchanging within RCI (or whoever). Does RAVC have any kind of trading power? Anyone own at RAVC and care to offer some advice?

I own one week of RAVC. Seven years ago I tried an exchange with II and had very poor trading power. The rules are one can book a Hawaiin property every two years. I have never stayed in one of their Hawaiian properties. It is easy to get a week at their other properties. They now have units at Otter Rock on the Oregon coast. I will be booking there since I live in the Northwest.

I haved good success putting a week from Tahoe into Trading Places and getting decent Hawaiin locations and a bonus week.

I would not buy another week at RAVC. But I am able to use the one I have to my satisfaction.

Thanks, Marilyn. That's helpful to know. I already own a couple of nice Hawaii resorts, so I was more interested in exchanging it for other places. I also live in the Northwest, so Otter Rock will be a for-sure destination.
