Any larger Ontario units?

Now that we have purchased a mobile home in Florida, that takes care of our winters down south. I am contemplating using some of our weeks to use in the summer, here in Ontario. Right now i am seeing some 6/6 units at Carriage hills and Carriage Ridge for next year, but we really need space for 8. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Carriage Hills units are actually sleeps 8, however RCI does not consider the studio portion as sleeps 4. Resort does consider the units as max occupancy of 8.

Trading into Ontario in the summer is difficult. That is when many owners use their weeks.

Carriage resorts (hills or ridge) are actually the best source of units.

The other resorts that have some availability are not all that nice.

Summer is very difficult.

Sandy, this morning I was seeing 2-bedroom 6/6 units for next July at Carriage hills, but as I previously mentioned, I potentially will have 8 going. Are these lockoffs? Does the resort allow 8 in these units?

Yes they are lockoffs and they allow 8 in the unit. I stayed there 2 years back and told them we have 8 in the unit at the time of check-in.

Thanks! I just put one on hold for next July 15-22. There are still other July and August weeks available. Hopefully they are not phantoms!

Are you seeing the 2BD units using RCI Weeks or RCI Points account? I only have weeks account and I rarely see 2BD in Carriage Hills. Always 1BD and studios. I assumed owners mostly deposit as 2 units. May be it is the trading power of my week.

I put it on hold with one of my Lowveld SA red weeks. It is still a fairly good trader. We usually use it to book Florida in February.
