Y tow an Alto

Just hooked up our new model Y to our Alto R1713 trailer.
Took it for a quick road trip from Cheltenham to Orangeville for its firsts test drive.
Up and down some hills, got 305Wh/km average over a 63km trip.

Do you think the WD hitch is necessary? I have a Model Y on order to tow a R1723. I am debating whether WD is necessary since the Y is 4000 lbs and the trailer maybe below 2500 lb(loaded).
