[Westgate] Lock off question

I have a 2BR lockoff at Westgate Painted Mountain and I would like to exchange it through II. I typically stay in 1BR or 2BR units. Will I get better results from II if I deposit as a 2BR, or will the results be the same if I deposit as a 1BR and Studio? I do not mind paying the unit upgrade fee if I can get another week of exchange from my Westgate unit.

II relies on the TDI (Travel Demand Index) rating for location as the biggest factor in trade. If you are wanting to get into a 1BR then do your lockoff. If you are wanting 2BR, then do your unit w/lockoff. It really doesn't matter if you are doing a 1BR and use the lockoff or primary.
