Has anyone recently traded into a 2BR at WKORV or WKORVN during prime summer season - mid June through mid August?

Does Starwood even deposit these weeks into the II system or are they virtually all reserved by WKORV owners and/or other SVN members using SO's?

Is there a chance of piecing a 2BR in Maui together by making 2 trades?

I started a search in January 2010 and got a 2 bedroom August 13, 2011 week 33 at WKORV week (I searched June 10-Aug 14). I was confirmed Nov 17, 2010.

That's what I thought. Trading into Maui during the shoulder seasons might work, but a true mid summer week would be all but impossible.

Again, I wonder if it can be done 1BR at a time.

I traded a 2 bdrm SVR back in mid October for Late September early October 2012. I had had a request first in since the first day I could do a RF - January 2011. I requested a 2 bedroom for WPROV and the 2 Maui westins with a date range from August 23 2012-October 31 2012. I was surprised when there were bulk deposits made in early October 2011 and my RF was not filled yet. I called and was offered a 1 bedroom for my 2 bedroom and because it was just my husband and myself I agreed to it. I was surprised that no one called even to ask if I would accept a smaller unit but they sure call and ask if you would accept a less desirable property that wasn't on my RF. I'm not sure what is going on with Starwood RF's but this experience tells me that I can't trust an RF to be filled before units are released to II.
