We’ve mention in many of our articles what we think of timeshare points. Now, we have been to many timeshare presentations over the last 15 yrs. Almost all were timeshare presentations pitching the RCI point system. We at timesharefun.com only own 3 deeded weeks. For example: At our Treetops Village resort in Lake of the Ozarks They do not rent to the public. They do rent only to Interval International or (II) members who may want to rent an empty unit due to a member not using their week. This makes our maintenance fees the least expensive of the 3 deeded weeks we own.
