aerodynamics

Would the Forest River Flagstaff Micro Lite 21 FBRS be considered to have good, fair or poor aerodynamics?

Towing Grand Marquis

We own a 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis (VIN# 2MEFM75V27X641091) with the 4.6 liter V8 engine and a 4 speed transmission, I'm a electrician/mechanic by trade so I installed a aux. transmission cooler that is rated for 5,000#, a Tekonsha Prodigy Brake controller, a Valley receiver hitch (model# 82610) rated for 4,000# trailer weight/ 400# tongue weight (weight carrying) and 6,000# trailer weight/ 600# tongue weight (weight distributing), I also did all of the wiring on the car for the trailer lights with electrical brakes and I installed a module light kit that uses battery power to operate the trailer lights. We tow a 2008 Fleetwood Niagra folding camper (I haven't weighed the camper yet but it has a 3,970# GVWR) with the car without any problems (we utilize a friction sway control) but we are considering upgrading to a Forest River Flagstaff Micro Lite 21 FBRS travel trailer or a Forest River Rockwood Mini Lite 2109S travel trailer with a base/dry weight of 3665# and a hitch weight of 336# and a cargo capacity of 1,033# we would utilize a weight distributing hitch system like a Reese Strait line trunnion bar with built in sway control setup. In your professional opinion, would the new travel trailer be too much weight for the Mercury and/or would I need to do more improvements on the car?
