If Only There Were More Nude Timeshares

Maybe no nude resorts, but great deals on timeshare resales.

The American Association for Nude Recreation is sending out press releases suggesting nude vacations as a way around the continually rising cost of checked baggage when you fly. United Airlines has now joined Delta and Continental in raising fees for checked bags.

An Orlando Sentinel blog, Tourism Central Florida, quotes Erich Schuttauf, executive director of The American Association for Nude Recreation, saying, “All you’ll need for the week (sunscreen, cap, sunglasses, shoes and toiletries) can fit in a small carry on. If more air travelers take a stand and a Nakation in 2010, it could send a message to the airlines using baggage fees as a way to get more money from their passengers.”

Nude Timeshares?

Back in 2007, there were rumors of a resort property that might be transformed into a timeshare resort for nudists, however a call to Carolyn Hawkins, public affairs director for the AANR, confirms that of their association’s 250 affiliated clubs in the United States and Canada, none are timeshare resorts. Carolyn explained that some clubs sell condo ownership to their members meaning that the individual owners can then use their condos as vacation rentals, however none are true timeshare ownership.

While it is possible that there are some privately owned nude resorts that sell timeshare ownership in their properties, Sell My Timeshare NOW does not have any in its extensive inventory of timeshare resales and timeshare rentals. Probably the next closest thing would be timeshares in resort areas where you will find nearby clothing optional beaches.

Until then you may have to pay to check your luggage for a timeshare vacation.
