Have business which works out of trailer. In NE WA state. I hook trailer into a 120v circuit at business. Unfortunately most new business have 15A and GFCI circuits.

Print test results data. 3-4 months a year it's below freezing. so running a heater is a must. Inkjet printer ink freezes. Leaves LaserJet. Which pops circuit or GFCI if you have heater on. Similar issue in summer. Trailer hot. Need to run A/C. Power up on laser printer pops circuits.

Any solutions?

15A is just enough (barely) for the laser printer alone. Plug anything else into the same circuit and you will be guaranteed to pop circuit breakers. You need separate circuits for high current draw devices. No options here.
