I was going to suggest to close the gap between the trunk and the hitch-box.

The first row of tufts really got sucked in there - is it sealed completely on the bottom ?
If the air persistently turns in there, it's got to have someplace that it can easily get (sucked) out.


Oh ...
You're only about 1 foot away from a full boattail ...


As for the angle on the bottom of the hitch-box, I seem to recall somebody used a hinged plate on the bottom of their boat tail.
At its lowest, it was at the optimal angle.
On a steep driveway, it'd just get pushed up.
A bumper or small wheel takes care of lifting the plate when needed while reversing.
