Two questions for those with experience:

1- Do most people getting an exchange into SSR get a preferred or standard unit?

2- Has anyone gotten a refurbished unit with the 2 Murphy beds yet while staying on an exchange? I would LOVE to try one of those out!

As far as I know, most inbound exchanges are assigned a standard unit.

We did two exchanges into SSR last summer/fall ... both were, thankfully, standard units that had not yet been refurbished.

It's hit or miss, I've had both many times. For SSR I don't think it's a big difference anyway.

Will the SSR changes change the occupancy limits in the 1 Bedroom? Right now it appears they sleep 4 and possibly a 5th, if they bring their own linens.

Also, I seem to remember there being an RCI list of successful trades for DVC on TUG?

Probably not as DVC allows 5 in a 1 BR plus one under 3 for all 1 BR except value rooms whether it be those that actually sleep 5 or not.

I have stayed 5 times and gotten 2 preferred and 3 standard.

I have not gotten a refurbed room, however.

You can always try requesting a room and see what happens. If you are going in the near future you may get your wish because of low occupancy.

I saw a video walkthrough of the remodeled SSR 1 bedrooms. They look absolutely PERFECT for our family.

I think I would prefer SSR over OKW if I knew the room had been refurbed and had the two murphy beds, even though the OKW rooms are much bigger.

I hope COVID doesn't delay it much because I would have zero hesitations about exchanging into any of the DVC resorts at that point.
