Propane line covering

The tubing under the trailer seems to be covered with split, wired on (bailing wire) 1958 garden hose segments. Some are missing. I'm assuming that these provide some small level of protection to very minor dangers (thrown rocks, etc.). Should I replace with similar, or is there something better?

You can spiral cut a good water hose which then is easily installed.

The hose will protect, to a large degree, the LPG copper tubing from bouncing stones.

Do not cover the fittings, or connections.

My trailed have the copper tubing exposed under the belly, but all copper tubing going thru the floor have really good hose wrapping.
Copper touching aluminum makes electrocorossion. That needs to be avoided.
I wouldn't worry about flying rocks, unless you are planning to tow the trailer to Alaska.

You can aways use that pipe insulation that some folks use to keep hot water pipes from leaching out heat. You just slip a section over a length of pipe, peel off the plastic and stick the two sides together. I used that on my Safari to protect the pipe near the stabilizer jack crank. I kept the wrench from accidently rubbing on the gas line.
