Bought many years ago at ridiculously low price and seems to have worked for us.
We do the same, plus use RCI & their bonus weeks program 1 week in a 1 bedroom in PDC last Feb $329 at the Mayan Palace, leaving for Mazatlan Sat 1 week 1 bedroom at the Pueblo Bonito $229
Buy a resale not from the resort itself 1/2 price, but research wht you're getting. A one bedroom in a 3 star resort doen't have much trading power. get gold crown in a very popular area & you cantrade to almost anywhere you want to go. You will not make money on it, or be able to sell the weeks to pay for it, but if you & your family use it you should come out on top of the game
