Tom Roper

My name is Tom Roper. I have over 20 yrs in the trailer industry. 15 of those years were spent appraising, selling, and servicing horse trailers. I created Starting Point Appraisals because of the thousands of phone calls. I've answered in my career with the same question.


I am in the industry every day and am qualified to will give you an honest retail appraisal from the smallest bumper pull to the largest living quarters. You will receive a starting point in which to work with.  (Always remember....when negotiating you can always come down on the price but you can't go back up!) 

We respect that your time is valuable.  As a result we created a site to make it as efficient as possible for you.  Simply complete the form and submit.  *Please note - pictures are very important. We will take care of the rest!

Our appraisals are not derived from "a book".  Instead we put the effort into our own personal research which includes connections with a variety of popular horse trailer brands.

Trailers up to 16' with or without living quarters are $49.00. 

Trailers larger than 16' with living quarters are $59.00.

You will receive a completed, formal appraisal within 24-48 hours.  (Payment due prior to receiving completed appraisal.)


Thank you from all of us at Starting Point Appraisals.
