It's been a while since I shopped for a timeshare. But the RCI points resort I own has gone bankrupt and I'd like to stay in the points game for, say, at least another decade. My concern is a) getting most bang for the bank (meaning something that will generate the most points for the lowest MFs (it also doesn't hurt if the price of the resort itself is low); and b) being able to get out of it if and when I want -- timeshares are so hard to unload and I'd like to feel like I have an "escape" if I need it (meaning it's a resort/company that has a solid history of deedbacks or that I can easily sell/dump if needed. Any thoughts? This is not a place to stay (though if it's in U.S. I might conceivably stay there). This is strictly for playing the points game.

The Grandview in Las Vegas has worked well for me. However, I don't know about deedbacks. I do know there is a market for those. By a market, I mean someone else will take it off your hands.
