If you could change one thing in your hybrid;

What would it be?

For me, maybe adding a small oven.

I would have more than one 110V circuit inside the trailer. If I run one electric space heater and anything else, the breaker trips.

I would get rid of the oven. Also split the outlets between two breakers or put the fridge on its own breaker. perhaps a larger capacity hot water heater.

You mean like this?
I took the stove out and just moved the Micro wave in its place,it was a perfect fit. Made a cutting board for the countertop opening and put a door where the Micro was and it dubbled my upper storage space. I have a butane portable stove that I sit on top when needed or just carry it outside when I cook. Most of the time I cook outside and with the fire pit it's all I need.

Thicker mattresses. The stock mattress is fine for my petite wife and daughters but I totally bottom it out.

Yes Tunce the Traveler - I would absolutely love to do that! Very clean and tidy looking. Did you just cap off the propane lines that were there? We only use our propane camping stove or the RVQUE.

Yes, just cap it off, test it for leaks and your safe. I pulled the electric down and put a new box in behind the wave for power.
When you look at the wave you see a large grille on top and the small or narrow one on the bottom, Well I switched them out to keep the wave as high as possible under my new cutting board. I shimmed it up about 2" from the base of the cabinet.
I should have done this mod over a year a go because it makes it so much easer to use and the extra counter top space is great. The top cabinet space is huge now. I found and old cabinet door at the local ReStore and removed the center panel and installed ribbed glass to match the glass on the other side of the trailer. Sanded and stained the door and got the same hinges at Lowes. Got the plungers to hold up the door at the RV store and you do need them on either side. If you need another pic. or 2 just let me know.
If you can't find the hinges just let me know because I have an RV store about 2 miles from my house and I think they were about $10.00, looked all over the place and they ended up being just down the street. I know the exact size you need!

I wish mine was lifted about 3 inches higher. I come so close to dragging the drain off when I go in and out of the driveway.

I wish I could get decent tires to go under it. No one makes a 13" that has a capacity that makes me comfortable.
