£450.00 seems OK, and its what you can do with it once you have it.
Sounds like you are a bit clued up on things, so you should not have any major issues.

Not able to offer any advice on the bearing, sorry, but could you take it out and visit a trailer part place for some help and advice?

It should be a tapered bearing, and there will be a number on the bearing so you get the right one (can be bought on the internet when you have the number off the bearing), bearings are easy to replace, its getting the shell out it runs in, it can be difficult to remove, easier to get a trailer place to supply and fit for you.
