Both together will be less than 0.5tonnes, so an unbraked 750Kg trailer would do.

My WD weighs in at 243 lb, with flat belt pulley but no trolley.

You need to bear in mind what You intend towing the trailer with!! Quite a lot of vehicles can't tow 750kg unbraked. I have a Ford Galaxy which can pull 2 tonne with brakes but only 700kg without, according to the book.

My Kia Rio can only tow I think its 453kg unbraked but it can tow 1100Kg if braked although I wouldn't intend to tow the braked.
