Over the last week, DH & I have discussed buying an RV, with 2 kids DD4 & DS6, camping would be fun (being in NC - go to the beach & mountains & of course FW @ WDW). Last night he said, "we really need to think about all of the cost: $20,000 camper (depreciating item), insurance, wear & tear on his truck, still have to pay for camp sites, and storage of it" (we can't keep it on our property - association rules). Then he said IT - "How much did that guy ("that guy" being Gib our tour guide last fall @ DVC) say it would cost to join Disney Vacation Club?..." now, if we were to buy, we'd probably go resale, we love BCV. The real question is we want our kids to see things other than just Disney, DS6 already says that he wants to go to Mexico and we would love to give DS & DD things like that (over junkie toys that break). How many of you use your points for traveling other than Disney. I know there is a transfer fee $95 (I believe). Are there other vacation clubs that are better suited for this & work on points so you don't have to go same time each year. We sat thru a timeshare presentation @ the beach once, this particular company left a really bad impression. We know that DVC is not pushy or cheezy, are there others? I pulled up Mariott Vac Club on-line, but they didn't offer a big selection - just Aruba I think - seems like DVC offers more variety. I know this is long, but I hope it makes a little sense as to what I'm asking, thanks for any input.
