Put any or all of it on a nice narrow trailer and you won't know you are hauling it. Except for backing up or parking Range hit is almost unnoticeable hauling low profile items on my trailer. Even better, brought home a new extra large capacity clothes washer on the "flatbed" hitch receiver cargo rack a few weeks ago. Haul eGO electric scooters on it too, 160lbs with batteries. All in the cars wake and no discernible range hit whatsoever
