You don't press them out at the roadside, you carry a spare hub ready to drop right on. Far easier. It's more difficult for me as were never know what bearing to carry for each collection. We tend to bring a few variations and hope for the best. If the worst happens we have a recovery service able to assist then repair when back at the workshop.
Sealed bearings generally speaking will outlast a taper set by years. If you really did want to change them you would not need to change the entire trailer anyway just the hubs, possibly the stub axle but id suggest it unrealistic to factor a replacement trailer for such a reason. It actually looks in quite good condition too. Saying that if the seller is willing to drop then go for it.
Like others have said I'd use other negatives to get the price down.
