Bottom line, IMO if you have a very specific model selected and they'll order it, get that paperwork started!
You should have been surprised! All this dealer wanted to do was move inventory on his lot. It's a good thing you went elsewhere. You would have been very unhappy down the road from these people.
We just went through the look at stock and then order process a few months ago. Of the six dealers we visited, ALL were willing to order a new unit for us. When we finally decided on the dealer (and the price) it took 5 weeks for it to arrive.
Before you buy, visit the dealer and spend some time there looking around and asking questions and not necessarily, just about what you are wanting to accomplish. We learned pretty quickly who was serious about wanting our business and who would take care of us down the road.
