Part of the registration problem will depend on your state laws.
In Missouri, we were allowed to register our trailer to "The Parents of
Troop 147" with the address of a long-time committee member/church member.
Registration fees in Missouri for non-profits and for a trailer as small as
ours are waived. However, that law is potentially changing; future fees
will be paid out of TROOP funds, rather than as a budget item. You may want
to check with an attorney or with the county collector, explain the problem,
and they can tell you the best way to proceed on registering the trailer.
Our biggest problem could be storage of the trailer. We generally keep it
in an out of the way corner of our parking lot. Every so often, the stake
informs us that we need to move the trailer off church property. The branch
president replies, every time, that "when such-and-such ward moves their
trailer, we'll move ours." Our trailer is still sitting at church.
