I would think that opening the water heater bypass valve would be a poor solution at best. Think of water flowing towards wherever there is low pressure. If you opened a cold water tap, hot water would flow into the cold water side. If you open a hot water tap, cold water would flow to the hot water side. This is not a permanent solution, as you would have to open the bypass valve each time you wanted to use the hot water, and then close the valve. Installing a mixing valve is the best idea. I read somewhere that many trailers come with one, if the water temperature at the water heater is not adjustable.
