The trailer pretty much drafts the tow vehicle like how Nextel cup car drivers draft each other.
So as long as your trailer doesn't stick out the sides or above there isn't a lot you can do.

If it's a big ass camper you want to pull search tractor trailer and RV aero mods.
A hump on the roof, side skirts, boat tail can help a lot.
