In terms of getting better fuel economy, I would look into some of the things that freight trucks are using:

-Trailer tail
-Side skirts
-Smooth wheel covers in the front
-Adjustable grille block

You can see some ideas here: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ero-32342.html

Definitely insulate. It goes a long way in terms of climate control.
