You want to put the regulator before the hose, not on the trailer.

Why? To protect the hose?

Yes to protect the hose also. A hose exposed to direct sunlight on a hot day with excessive pressure in it won't last long. I am using the same hose that I started with 4 years ago and I full time. My pressure regulator has always been used before the hose and I'm sure this is the reason the hose is still going strong.

Why would anyone choose to put the regulator at the trailer and NOT protect the hose?

I think I may be a little overboard on my water connection. In sequence:
1. A "Y" with shut off's. So I can use another hose at full pressure if needed for something else.
2. Oil filled pressure gauge showing supply pressure.
3. Watts 263A adjustable regulator w/oil filled pressure gauge. Set to 50 PSI.
4. White water hose. I carry 2 - 10 ft and 1 - 25 ft white hoses.
5. Water filter.
6. 90 degree adapter attached to the city water port.

I also carry a 25 ft green garden hose for the black water tank flusher and any other purpose that may come up.

X2 - I use the same set up for my pop up except I don't have #2

Same setup for me as well, except I just have the standard ~50 PSI screw-on regulator instead of those others you mentioned... for now.
