I reently had to get the value on a used TrailsWest so I could get financing. I took it to a local trailer dealership that sells Trailswest trailers,among other brands, and they wrote me up a used trailer value. You could try that...

This is one of the missions of the new North American Trailer Dealers Ass. to create a blue book for trailers. http://www.natda.org/ Hopefully in the next year. Which should help on the finance side. It took along time to get a blue book for class B vans. If any of you have a Ford Super Cruizer, you know how hard that was to get a bank value on conversion trucks. This website is probably the best blue book for trailers we have now. You can at least see what folks are asking for their used trailers. Like what AutoTrader.com does for trucks.

That be good. When I bought my 98 featherlite the credit union had a problem with the no blue book price and didn't know how to finance it. They finally just said they were going to give us a signature loan and list it as furniture and keep the trailer title as collateral. It worked out better for us this way, no down payment like an auto loan was going to require. I really didn't care which way they did it as long as I got my trailer.

Thank you Mr. Truck for the introduction. Yes, that is one of our primary missions, the develpment of the TAG book. (Trailer Appraisal Guide) By creating the appraisal guide it will help bring better lending programs, and insurance programs to our industry.
The North American Trailer Dealers Association (NATDA) is the only association today that targets and unifies the Light & Medium Duty Trailer Dealers serving the United States, Canada and Mexico. The NATDA was newly established in 2007 as a focused business development association for the advancement of the Trailer Dealers and for the industry as a whole. Our mission is to most effectively promote industry wide growth, prosperity and economic strength by banding together as one voice.
The auto industry has the NADA, the RV industry has the RVDA, and now the Trailer Industry has the NATDA.

The reson that we only have a handful, and I mean a VERY small handfull of national lenders for horse trailers is because there is no accurate guide book. There are currently only (4) four horse trailer manufacturers listed in the NADA book. Even at this, there are no "adds" for anything beyond the living quarters. There are no adds for hay racks/pods, drop down windows, stud stalls, mangers, etc. The point is we need a guide book that uses all of the accessories, and otions that make up a trailer. This is the ONLY way that we will get lenders and insurance companies to "look" at our industry.
