I'll agree that there wasn't much attractive pricing at the Mpls show. On the other hand, prices are often heavily discounted even in good times. They really can't sell for much less and make any money. They have to stay in business. We purchased from Shorewood last year. Very nice people. Trailer was delivered in awesome condition. Sometimes manufacturers will contribute to lowering the price on certain trailers. Perhaps your Iowa dealer had a special arrangement with the manufacturer.
