Maybe this is meant to be: a friend of a friend is selling a soft rack. I'd never heard of one before today. Even if his doesn't look like it will work, I see many available on-line for under $100. Any thoughts on using a soft rack with a 2018 Leaf?

Looks like Inno racks makes a 2018 LEAF compatible roof rack for a SUP:

That brand is definitely less expensive than Thule or Yakama

Yes I'd imagine different racks have quite a bit of difference on drag, the one I used was very large and blocky, thus it reduced MPG(I used it on a gas car) quite a bit. Speed would also make a big difference, going very fast(70+ as I did on my gas car) would cause a lot more drag than say going 40 or even 55 MPH.
I hear you, the little trailer I'm looking at is well over $2k and seem to be almost impossible to find used, hence why I don't have one yet :)
