Timeshares in The United States

The concept of owning your vacation destination for only a week had several people excited, many business men considered it pure genius and jumped right in on the chance to copy the idea.   When the concept finally made it to the United States it was improved with a nice little gimmick that allows you to "exchange" your timeshare for another. 

Not only can you exchange the time in which you use your owned property, but you could also "own" a property anywhere in the world for just a week.

In theory and on paper it sounds great.  You could stay anywhere in the world and avoid the pricey reservations.  In fact, it's this "feature" that is stressed most during the timeshare sales pitch. 

In America, it's not a ripoff unless you know your getting ripped-off!
