We joined Silent Valley Club near Banning, California 4 years ago. Since then the RV resort, (which claims to NOT be a timeshare, but basically is – same scam) has gone down hill and is poorly managed. The amenities have been cut due to the hard economic times and gas prices, and they have over 50% member defaults. Because they are in such financial straits they keep raising the dues and now are assessing every remaining member $400, due with only 4 weeks notice. I am defaulting. I have had enough.
Where are the lawmakers regarding timeshares….??? Is the timeshare lobby so strong with our politicians that the citizens are ignored? I am writing to my state and federal congressmen regarding these scams. Maybe we all should. Strength in numbers.
