It's just extra profit as others have said. 30 or 40 years ago the dealers might have done some actual "prep" but even then it meant paying some high school kid a few bucks to tear out the plastic covering the interior surfaces and maybe a quick wash - hence the phrase "$500 car wash". I once rented a car while on a business trip and watched as the brand new car was delivered to the rental lot and as soon as it was off the truck the agent handed me the keys and I drove it away - no car wash, no gas put in it, no tire pressure check, nothing. It drove fine. RVs may be different but I doubt it.

When we were shopping for a toad we picked out a Jeep Grand Cherokee we liked. We negotiated a price and were prepared to pay for the vehicle. Got the paperwork and found a $500.00 charge added for administration fee. The salesman refused to remove it. We left the dealer headed home. About 15 minutes later we got a call that they would remove the charge. We did not return to that dealer.
