You could get a router, wireless or hard wire. That will provide your DHCP services to all of the clients attached. I use this setup in my home and run multiple clients from one cable modem.

Looks like my parents do have a cable wall outlet in the sunroom that is way closer to the airstream....this should allow me to get a cable to the trailer more easily. And it does open the option maybe for a WAP very close to the trailer.....heres the layout of the house.....downstairs opposite side of house from trailer is my parents computer setup....they do not have wireless...they get there internet from a cox modem

......I would like to get both cable and television to the trailer and I can do it easily now from the sunroom....if I screw the cable to the cable IN jack of the trailer I know i can get cable tv but probably only basic channels. Am I correct in assuming that I would have to pay COX or an additional set top box inside the trailer? ....also... whats my solution then for internet from that same cable? I hear I cant have a second modem?......Could I put a wireless router in the sunroom thats hooked into the cable outlet? or does the wireless router have to be down where my parents computer/modem is on the other side of the house....sorry i hope that gives a clear picture...

The wireless router needs to be plugged into the cable modem. Your folk's computer then has to plug into the wireless router, (all of the one's I've seen also have hard-wire ports, too)...unless it has a wireless ethernet card in it. So you could, theoretically, put the wifi router somewhere else, and run cables back to the cable modem.
the main question is, "how far is the cable modem/existing computer setup from the trailer?"

I have a similar situation at my house. trailer is 50' from the house; wifi router is at the opposite end of the house...but its not a big house. Its probably 80' away horizontally, and then up 2 stories...a couple of interior walls between it and the absolutely fine inside the trailer.

You can also get larger antennas for some models of wifi routers, that help boost the signal.
