The a/c is probably because the dealer originally ordered it without a/c, and then added it, either because the buyer wanted it or because it is a less expensive option to the ordering dealer. I have worked on a couple of pods, all from the north, except one, that had that arrangement and a/c.One was from GA, but she wasn't the original owner and didn't know the history of her rings pod.

Furpod, 
Knowing the seller Cheyenne Rv Sales,  bought 30 and are selling them on ebay for $13600 they must have either bought overstock cheap or low enough priced and added a/c. Mine came with awning, elec jack, lp tank cover and A/C, tv, micro. so pretty loaded
My thought is that these were an overrun, and sold in bulk to the dealer. Mine was made in late 2018. And checking online 2019's have the brown door and the brown slide out corner blocks also, so I guess this is how they're being made now.

For what it's worth, our 180 was made in April 2019.  The registration says it is a 2019 model.  Interior colors are the same as yours.  Our air conditioner is totally different.  The thermostat is digital mounted right of the bathroom door.

I just now got a sherline 1000 tongue scale and weighed the tongue.  400 pounds even.

That's with the fresh water tank drained of all it will drain in the level position, 5 gallons in the black tank, grey tank empty, inside stocked minimally with pots & pans, some dry goods, two sleeping bags, minimal items in the storage compartments, 53 pound battery, electric tongue jack, and estimate 4 gallons in a single propane tank.

Tcj,
I weighed my tongue this morning and I am at 425lbs. with a 3/4 full full fresh, empty black & grey, 1 lp tank-est3gal. 1 battery, and my drawers under the mattress mod. not stocked with hardly anything.

Here's the odd thing, I just bought it on 8/5/2019 new, and was told it was an 2018. And mine was built on 4/5/2017. So this thing sat around for 2 years somewhere. the price was right so I'm ok with that, but do feel cheated a bit. 

Does anyone know the part # for the double step? With the lift I need it. I can't find it anywhere online.

Thanks John
