Yes, the added weight of the trailer will exact an FE penalty on acceleration and up hills, but on a round trip much of that penalty will be regained in down hill coasting. And regenerative coast down for stops and reduced speed ahead zones would load up the battery more. If I put a removable cone on the back of the trailer, I may even be able to lower the CD of the combo, and lift some of the tongue weight.
