KEY RATING DRIVERS

These affirmations reflect the ability of each transaction's credit enhancement to provide loss coverage consistent with the current rating levels. The Stable Rating Outlook on all tranches reflect Fitch's expectation that the notes will remain sufficiently enhanced to cover the stressed loss levels consistent with the current ratings for the next 12 to 18 months.

Fitch will continue to monitor economic conditions and their impact as they relate to timeshare asset-backed securities and the trust level performance variables and update the ratings accordingly.

RATING SENSITIVIES

Unanticipated increases in the frequency of defaults could produce loss levels higher than the current expectations and impact available loss coverage. Lower loss coverage could affect ratings and Rating Outlooks, depending on the extent of the decline in coverage.

To date, the transactions have exhibited zero losses (due to repurchases) and default performance is consistent with Fitch's initial expectations. Default coverage and multiple levels are consistent with the current ratings. A material deterioration in performance would have to occur within the asset pools to have potential negative impact on the outstanding ratings.

Fitch's stress and rating sensitivity analyses are discussed in the presale reports listed below, all of which are available at 'www.fitchratings.com'.

Fitch's analysis of the Representations and Warranties (R&W) of this transaction can be found in 'Sierra Timeshare 2012-2 Receivables Funding LLC - Appendix' and 'Sierra Timeshare 2013-2 Receivables Funding LLC - Appendix'.
