Is this an ok deal? Your comments / feedback is welcomed.
The prices do seem highly regional (probably due to distance from the factory). For some reason in my area Flagstaff seems to be higher priced than Rockwood and from my research that seems to be a decent price. The lowest I was able to get the a122s in CT was about $12k (the flagstaff model was about $500 more) however I was able to save about $2k by driving to northern VT to a high volume dealer.
I tried to match this price locally and was told that they couldn't because the price i was quoted was below what they could buy the trailer at and that I should jump on it. They didn't even try to talk me out of it or tout their superior service and value add.
Since it doesnt say where you are I am going to assume you are outside the Indiana region. In that case I'd say you got a decent deal. That seems on par or better than my local prices. If you are willing to drive to a high volume dealer you might be able to save $500 - $1k but there are risks and issues associated with that of course. For me it means making a weekend out of picking up the trailer. We are going to go up on a friday when the trailer comes in from the factory and then spend the night overnight there to make sure there are no issues. If we discover anything we then either have to hope the dealer is able to fix it the same day or hope the local rockwood dealer is able to take care of the issue for us under warranty without playing too many games as we didnt buy from them. I am not too concerned but it is something to consider.
Of course from the post it sounds like you already bought so a lot of this is moot. So I'd be happy you got a decent deal and enjoy your new toy. I am a bit envious. I am stuck in that window where I am waiting the few weeks for delivery of my new toy from the factory and am getting quite anxious to play with it.
