How to get 2 or 3 Weeks for 1
Super exchanging is easy to do if you plan for it. The easiest
way to do it is to own a Lockout Unit. A lockout unit
is one timeshare unit that can be divided into two, three or four
units. How? Simple.
You've been in a hotel with a
connecting door, right? The same thing works here. I
recently stayed in a 2 bedroom lockout unit. If you closed
(and locked) the connecting doors, you separated the unit into a one
bedroom timeshare with complete kitchen and bedroom, and one
efficiency unit as the second bedroom. Yes, the efficiency
unit was a little small, but acting just as the second bedroom it
does fine. It's also a good unit for the couple that plans to
stay on the go all the time and wants to save money on purchase and
The reason these units are so
special, is that you could bank them as one unit to two units if
you're the owner of a two bedroom unit. I've heard of people
that own three bedroom units being able to bank them as three
different weeks, it's your choice.
Want to take the whole family one
year? Keep the whole unit. Just you and the wife the
next year? Bank the parts f the timeshare you won't be using.
It's pretty cool, right?
That's why we like to call it

timeshare. Bank one half, bank the other half, bank both halves
as one big unit.
For example. We have a
timeshare at Westgate Vacation Villas right by Walt Disney World. This timeshare unit is a 3 Bedroom,
2 Bathroom lockout. It can be banked as:
