Good Price?

Have a 2014 palomino puma 31ft TT w/2 slides. It is a 50 amp service camper which is "2nd A/C" ready. From what I understand is that it is prewired for a 2nd unit in the front. I just got a quote from my dealer to install a 15k btu A/C unit total labor and parts $1050+tax. This seemed a little high but was just curious if it's in the ballpark of what that would normally cost. Any suggestions/advise is appreciated.
Btw, I live in south Louisiana and while it is extremely hot in the summertime, my camper does fine with one unit. This is more of a spare/backup and to assist the other unit while summertime camping.

Thanks Ram. I didn't get a quote for a 13,500 but I'm guessing that 13,500 would be plenty enough especially as a spare/second unit. I'll def ask and see what the price dif would be. When I asked for the quote I told them "one just like the one that is on there". My thoughts are if the units are the same then I could carry common spare parts etc. Yeah, it's only early June and hot already!! 4 more months till cooler temps!!

Was born& raised in South Louisiana so I know a second AC would be nice if you are already wired & Braced for it .
We went out last October in 92 degree Heat to do some trout fishing on the coast & I really don't think the one 15000 would have been enough to keep the entire camper cool during the heat of the day .
Happy Camping & enjoy your new rig

That's pretty close in parts/labor depending on what model they are installing. Clarify what they are installing first; model, BTU rating, ducted vs. non ducted, normal vs. low profile. Don't throw money without learning what you're paying for.

Sounds like a fair quote to me.
