Only problem with it is that it gets half the milage with more polution output than the Prius. It probably also costs more than a Prius.
The extra drag from the air and rolling resistance of the trailor makes it hard to make a range extending trailor more efficient than a self contained hybrid. The advantage of using a trailor is that several EV owners will be able to share a single trailor since for 90% of the time they will be able to make their trips using just the energy stored in the batteries. They will only need it when going on longer trips.

BTW: I don't own an electric (yet...anybody want to buy a bunch of computers so I can) but do drive one accasionally at U-E high school where I volunteer as an advisor for their EV team.
