You'll definitely have to do the B+E test - I don't think you'll be able to find a combination of tow vehicle/Ribcraft 5.85 that will be legal under cat B.
The B+E test is basically like the normal test but you're towing a trailer and its lasts longer. You don't have to do any manoeuvres on the road, but you will have to do a reversing manoeuvre and a controlled stop at the HGV centre. Apart from that you just have to couple and uncouple the trailer. It'll cost you a few hundred by the time you've had a few lessons and paid for the test.
