Something strange with this MSRP document?

The dealer showed me the MSRP document, but NOWHERE on the document was the name or logo of Airstream. That got me wondering. And then I noticed the typos, for example the word "HEIGHT" is spelled correctly on one line, and on the following two lines, it is spelled "HIEIGHT" and "HGITH" !! I thought these documents were done with a computer, so there seems to be no reason for these errors.

This is for a 2009 Sport 17,
$30,505 base price
2,102 pano windows
822 A/C
1,016 awning
135 microwave
821 tv/dvd
832 destination charge
$36,233 Total

Are these numbers proper Airstream prices? Am I overly cautious, or should you expect the manufacturer's name to be on the MSRP? And the typos, to me, are red flags, if not indicating a bogus document, then surely issues with quality controls.

Any feedback on this would be appreciated.

Why not phone Airstream direct and ask them? Or call another AS dealer and ask for pricing for the Sport 17' and see what they quote for accessories.

So I called Airstream, and it was the start of a wonderful/horrible experience.
I blogged about it here:

Hi, my MSRP also looked like yours except mine didn't have any spelling errors. As for your Corvette, doesn't it have "ON STAR"?
