Change??? Well first, I'd change the color of the f'glass that ours was formed from to Snow White (as it is now) from the 'dated' Pea Soup Green it was born with, also since now I have sciatica, maybe a 6 in. wider bed, just so I wouldn't be waking the Trailer Goddess every time I struggle to turn over in bed.
Other than that, IF I wanted a different trailer, I'd just go buy one
IF you could change something about your fiberglass trailer(s) design/functionality...
In my Compact Jr, the floor was only 3' wide, under the central area, and only 1/2" thick plywood. The area under the bunks, kitchen cabinets, and closet/ice box had the fiberglass walls curve under. I replaced the floor with 3/4" plywood, and extended it wider, cantilevered out over the fiberglass curve under. This created a floor in the corner closet/ice box area, where I created a "privacy room" (with an accordion door) for the porta-potty. I moved the replacement for the ice box to the kitchen cabinet under the sink, and just omitted a closet.

Boy, now I can agree with that! Not only is the stuff ugly, it's heavier than most real-wood and furniture-grade plywood alternatives, too. I found that I could replace our particle board upper cabinets with larger ones made from 3/8" cherry plywood and poplar wood cabinets with aluminum mesh insets that weigh less than the original.
Over time I plan to replace all our particle board cabinets and doors with cherry plywood (which I got cheap at a factory-seconds shop because the finish on one side was scratched or marred in some way) and poplar/aluminum doors. The catch is that I don't think you can order a trailer that uses thinner, lighter plywood over heavy 3/4" particle board or 3/4" plywood; you have to do this mod yourself.
Being in our first "season" I don't have the wealth of experience some of the other folks do, but the changes we wanted we built in the gut and redo. If there is something we encounter as we camp, we just build it out between trips. Initially, we couldn't find the right awning/canopy that fit our needs and the Scamp as well, but the First Up has been a fantastic solution and took care of that. Just got an awning mat from RV Awning Mat that looks like it is the perfect solution to go with the canopy room. Now we'll have to get on the road again and test it.
If I wanted more features like bigger beds or shower, I now know which one's have what and I'd sell this one and get that one. For the time being we are extremely content with the one we have and the features we've added make it very functional. We spent almost half of the summer on the road and with two kids that is a trial by fire.....
So long answer to short....wouldn't change a thing. (unless I can ever figure out that stove mod, eh Brian)
I'd like the sink to be "under counter" style and also the stove and both to have covers. Reason, I'd really like a much bigger countertop when fixing sandwiches, etc. More electric plugins... especially one outside so I could plug in my tacky patio lights without the need of an extension cord. Electric tongue jack. Welded on scissors jacks on back. Outdoor patio light that can be turn on/off inside the trailer.

Sliding window rather than crank-out window on curb/firepit side: we walk there and could bump our heads, eh.
And then I would like a sparkly evening gown and some place to wear it.
CharlynnT, I have taken ONE too many hits from the curb side crank open window on our Trillium, so I have taken a file/small grinder and gently rounded the outside corners on that window. IT doesn't stop me from bumping into it, it just reduces the amount of body damage to myself (and others). Also we have a small plastique foldable table which we now place under the window after we get camp set up. This usually means we HAVE to 'work around' the open window!!
