The on,y MH's with spares are class B's and some C's! I don't think I've ever seen a class A with a spare, not even ones with the 19.5" wheels. They are big and take up a lot of space.

I wouldn't worry about that stuff.
I would worry about how the dealer is going to handle warranty work.

Add on the contract:
Warranty work performed and completed within 30 days or else the dealer starts paying you a set $$ amount for everyday over 30.

If the dealer is cutting every cost, they will not/would not sign any contract concerning penalty payment for untimely warranty service.

It would be very unusual, to not have propane cylinders supplied with any new RV trailer.

My '04 Itasca class A came with a spare (19.5") and lug wrench, with a purpose made storage location under the bed (accessible from outside). The HWH jacks will lift it enough to change.

I realize that I bought my TT before the pandemic but my dealer treated me well. He had the LP tank full, a new series 27 battery (that was less than 2 months old according to the manufacturers sticker,) a very nice stinky slinky, a 35' 30 amp extension cord, a set of legos, 15 to 30 amp adapter, a 30 to 50 amp adapter, 4 door keys, 4 notorious storage compartment keys, he added a heavy tongue jack with wheel and foot, a coupon book for 10 days of free camping no delivery fee, no dealer prep fee, and 15% off in his store for life.
Camping World on the other hand wanted wanted $100 for a full lp tank, $200 for a series 24 battery, $20 for a battery box, $1000 delivery fee, $1000 price increase if I paid cash (not using their financing) and a couple of more rip offs.

If the dealer wants you to buy his RV then let's see him stand behind his business.

You got a good dealer there.
We got the battery spare tire two full tanks, the paper thin slinky that still sits in the garage,because it is not suitable for it.s intended purpose. And a book of coupons for various gear that was mostly useless of horrendously over priced.

I'm really only interested in the out the door price.
What accessories are included should be factored in but that is less than$100.00 worth of stuff.
I'm not going to let those items be the deal breaker.
Give me the final price. I don't really care how you get there or what you call the various charges and fees. Tell me what's included than, just give me the final figure.

The only blanket statement is, there are no blanket statements.

Just because one dealer does these things does not mean that it is the same across the board.

Just because one dealer does not include these items does not mean it's time to walk away.

What if, that dealer is selling you the trailer for $5000 less than anywhere else, because they cut out the overhead of including "freebies" with their campers? You do realize that these "free" things are not really free, right? They're working it into the price of the trailer.

If you can go out and but those things for yourself and still have a better deal than the dealer who includes all these things "free," you would be pretty silly to not take the deal. However there are some people who hear the word "free" and lose all common sense. That's what these dealers offering freebies are counting on.
