  • Timeshares

    Does any of you have a timeshare or know first hand of someone that has one that they actually enjoy? I am thinking of getting one, dont know where, but I am not going thru one of those pressure packed presentations. I am thinking of buying someone elses.

    BOP5, I am not interested at all in any of your thoughts or inputs so please do not respond to this.

    Yes I know people who enjoy their timeshares very much, one in Cozy Mel (sp?) and one in Sedona.

    Sorry, I ignore all pre-emptive requests that I have nothing to ad to a subject. For the future you would have been better not mentioning me at all.

      i would never buy into a time share. you're restricted to where and when you can go. for the money, you could go where ever and when ever you want and stay in a nice hotel. if it were such a great deal, they wouldn't have to high pressure sell it so much.

      i went through the schtick once. every time i got up to leave they kept bringing in more people to get me to stay. finally it came to me getting upset and walking out.

        Time shares are a bad idea man. I am amazed that these time share companies stay in business. My mom used to have one and it was a horrible 'investment', I have never know a single person who had a good thing to say about them, (other than the idiot BOP). Spend your money on your Jeep or a travel trailer or something like that, hell buy a cruise to Alaska or something if you just want to spend money.

          A good friend of mine has had a timeshare for about 2 decades. It's flexible, so she can bank her weekend and use it at a different time or location, simply by arrangement/reservation. Even so, she has only used it once in the past 8 years that I've known of.
          I don't see it as a very good investment/arrangement.
          I think you'd be better off spending the money on a chunk of wilderness somewhere, and going camping. Or, as someone suggested, invest in beer, at least you have the recycling when you're done!

                Here is something to think about with regard to timeshares:

                1. Do you have anything tangible with a timeshare? Can you go to it 24/7 any day and open the door and say, "This is my vacation home"?

                2. What are the annual upkeep fees? Some places are up to $1000 annually in maintenance fees and membership dues.

                I have used the first one at a timeshare presentation, and watched a salesman try to tell me yes, but the truth is no.

                Personally, I would rather spend the money on an RV or another Jeep project than a timeshare.
