So I was looking at a new 2021 Springdale and I happen to ask if this trailer would be ready to go if I bought it right now. The salesman said they do not supply sewer hose, WATER hose or Propane Tanks.....is this normal?....kind of turned me off...

Could be on sewer and water hoses but not without propane tanks.

Like Lwiddis said... absolutely with LP tanks.... the other stuff they usually give you a choice.....

#1 - give you a crappy starter kit, good enough to use the first time
#2 - give you a store credit to purchase from their shop.

Thats pretty stupid that they do not offer either, tell them its a deal breaker and see what they do

Never purchased a new RV (or used for that matter) without propane tanks. I do know I purchased a new truck camper and it did not come with steps... go figure. I got the steps without added cost. But NEVER without LP tanks.

I wouldn't expect anything to be included that isn't fastened to the RV; this would include propane tanks and a battery. Hoses, cords, levelers, adapters, etc. are all up to you to purchase.

At that point I walk away.

NO it is not normal. There is a tremendous mark up within the RV industry and these should be thrown in to the deal. Are wheels also not included? Seriously, what a jack wagon

Depends on what the market is like. If they have more customers than trailers to sell, they’ll hold out for the highest price the can squeeze you for. If the have lots of trailers and no customers, the thrown in incentives can be pretty lucrative. There is no such thing as normal, what’s normal today could be out the window next week.

factory supplies the empty propane tanks. the dealer will usually fill the tanks for free. the other stuff is sometimes included in a lousy starter kit but usually it's not included.
you'll get better hoses from the RV section at Walmart.

Speaking of coming with wheels... does the camper have a spare tire? Some dealers sell campers, especially TT, without spares. They, of course, have a "spare tire kit" available to buy.
