Can you not just let the tubes down ? I reckon it's right on the money length wise.

Don't want to go larger (so the wife says) than 5m as the tow vehicle is an Astra - and don't really want to have to inflate each time we go out

Fair points. Not much weight over the 490 but I get your points. Best find you a smaller one then

Not trying to sell you ours - it won't fit. Your car would pull more than you think

I'm guessing it's rated to what, 1100kgs braked ? Or 750kgs un-braked.

The dr-520 is only 265kg dry, motor say 120kgs, trailer 100kgs. That's only 485. Add another 200 for rigging, fuel etc and your still under budget.

I'd agree a 490 would be better suited though.
