Addontitis!!

Has struck! For our Dec 2012 trip we had a BLT 1 Bdrm lake view (it was me, DH, DS 6 mos, and MiL). I think we had extra points that year because of developer points we had from purchasing in 2011....anywho we had enough points so we did it!

But now, we went for 9 days this summer, DH, me and DS1 in a SSR studio. And we have a tripe booked for Nov, 4 nights in a BLT studio. Planning our trip for next summer, looks like its going to be another studio because we want to stay 10 days .... Only this time DS will be 2 and we will have a 3 months old as well (yay!). But a studio....oh my. . I will miss the laundry. And the living room space.

I wan more points! Ah!

We currently have 180 at BLT, but we have Sept UY. Now that DH is a teacher (career change) that's a horrible use year since our big trips will always be June or July. When we bought we planned on December trips, hence the amount and UY.

More reasons for addonitis!!

MagicalMeg - would the add-on have to be DVC? We trade into DVC through RCI (and previously II) using other timeshare almost every year. For me the DVC points are a back-up plan in case our exchange request failed. This idea might not be quite as fun as buying more DVC ... but might be worth exploring and considering.

I had never thought of trading into DVC.... I have zero knowledge of other timeshares....would you have any resources you could suggest for research? I'm assuming you're suggesting this because it may be cheaper than DVC? Perhaps buy in cost &/or maintenance fees?

Ah, you might want to start with the Timeshare Advice topics on the Timeshare Users Group (TUG) website. There are Timeshare 101 topics, a checklist to consider for purchase selection, etc. Some of the articles are dated -- but still provide a helpful starting point. You might also jump into the discussions on the TUG forums. Take a long time (6 months or more) before making any purchases. Timeshares are EASY to buy and DIFFICULT to exit.

We have 600 and I still want to add on 200 more in the future. (Poly maybe?) Even at that point...it probably still won't be enough for me. Addonitis is very itchy!

It's a common problem around these parts, and best not discussed. We're enablers .

Our 3rd purchase just filed with Orange County and we're waiting on the contract to be loaded to our account.

Addonitis means annual member fees go UP, UP, UP.

I know! That's what's keeping us from buying. Although I've thought about buying extra & renting those out to cover dues. Right now I'm wanting to add about 200-250 for our needs ( 1 Bdrm BLT in July, preferably LV).

DVC could restrict renting in some way, so only buy what you need.

I've heard discussions on this but haven't been able to work out the math to justify this. I also looked at RCI to transfer in. My calculations showed a higher maintenance fee and buy-in wasn't that much lower than an SSR resale contract.

We may also move from Thanksgiving/early Dec vacations to summer. To hold off on buying more points, I got some transfer points. That should hold us through next year! Until we're sure how we'll vacation once kids are in school, I plan to just borrow and transfer when we need.

I've added on 30 times after we purchased our original DVC contract.

Does that qualify as addonitis?
