concrete driveway pitch

I recently had a new driveway and garage slab poured. When I first looked at it, it looked lopsided. I measured the drop from end to end and found that it drops 13 inches on one side and 5 on the other, with variations in between (the driveway is 50 feet long).
The drive is to park an RV on, so I need it reasonably level.
The contractor says it's not possible to do what I asked, even though he assured me it was before he poured the concrete. My question is, is it unreasonable to ask him to fix the driveway now that it's poured?

13" in 50' is 1/4" per ft which is considered the minimum for good watershed.
