You're talking about a pretty major plumbing remodel.

A couple things to consider...

When you indicate kitchen tap and bathroom tap - are you referring to cold side only? or both hot and cold? Depending on your answer you may need two or perhaps four of these systems - cold kitchen, cold bathroom, hot kitchen, hot bathroom.

The only way to easily filter both locations (and both hot and cold if that's desired) is to put the system on the inlet of the trailer. Otherwise, as posted above you're faced with some sort of re-plumbing to route water lines back and forth to the two locations you mentioned.

Consider putting the filter on the inlet of the trailer and filter all water. Yes, you may need to replace the filters more often because you'll be filtering the toilet and the shower and both hot and cold at the kitchen and bath sink but that seems much more straightforward IMO.

I built a insulated wooden box with a removable lid to house my Watts 2 filter rack and water softener in. It sits outside my 22FB between the campground hose bib and my water inlet. I painted the box with "Flex Seal" to water proof it and mounted a 100 watt light bulb inside it to protect against freezing temps. This set up survived 2 separate 16 degrees F lows this winter. I will post some pictures of it next weekend.

Question: If you use an "inline filter" like this one:
https://www.amazon.com/Camco-40045-T...+water+filters
Why would you need to go thru all the trouble of an interior filter. Sure seems like a lot of work with not a whole lot of benefit. Not questioning your judgement just saying'.

A lightbulb does an amazing job at this task. I've seen them used to heat a well head inside a doghouse sized building way out in a rural campsite area. Amazing how one small bulb can address such a long term heating issue....

Rpatrick16,
We currently use our 22FB as a second home and spend 4-5 nights per week in it, which is parked at an RV park close to where my wife works. I did use one of these filters when we were camping 1 or 2 weekends a month. My described set up is too heavy to travel with so won't be bringing it along on any trips.

Keep in mind that the filter at the inlet will not service your holding tank when you fill the tank. We keep the filter portable and attach to the water supply at the end of the hose to filter water into inlet or the holding tank as used.

As promised, pictures of my water filter & softener set up. The 1/2" thick plywood wood box inside dimensions are 24x12x24 inches deep. The 4 sides and the shoebox lid have 5/8" thick rigid foil faced insulation. I sealed all interior and exterior joints and seams of the box with foil tape. The bottom of the box is not insulated. The hoses are insulated from the connection at the filter or softener to 3" outside the box to help seal the 2" diameter holes cut into the sides of the box that make it easier to connect the hoses.

A 10' hose is used from the hose bibb to the Watts 520022 RV/Boat Duo Exterior Water Filter with Garden Hose Fittings. It is mounted flush with the top of the box.

https://www.amazon.com/Watts-520022-.../dp/B0018N0XCI

A second 10' hose connects the filters to the FlowPur M7002 RV Pro 10,000 Portable Water Softener. It sits on the box bottom.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0050...water+softener

I used plumbers tape on all of the hose fittings to ensure a tight fit. The box has wheels and lifting handles and a plastic junction box fastened to the bottom of the box and a plastic chorded bulb only light fixture. The chord exits the box under the lid. I painted the entire box with Flex Seal to water proof it. I drilled a hole in the bottom to drain water in the event of a leak.
