Not in most places.

Even in the strictest counties, I've never heard about anybody giving somebody crap for parking a trailer in their driveway. You should be fine, and honestly even if somebody says something, it'll pretty much just be a warning. After that you can move it somewhere else. I wouldn't worry about it

That depends on local zoning laws, etc.

Typically no but some cities and hoa's could have rules against it.

That depends on the zoning laws for your area or possibly the HOA regulations for your community.Source(s): FL landlord

I would not think it would be, unless it is blocking the sidewalk, or the street

My city, Oakland, CA.:
Cars, Recreational Vehicles, Boats and Trailers
Park your car in your driveway, on an approved paved
front yard parking area, or on the street in a legal parking
space. Parking automobiles on your front lawn, front
yard or sidewalk is prohibited.
Recreational vehicles, boats and trailers can only be
parked on your property in a fully enclosed garage.
Inoperable or Unlicensed Vehicles
Store inoperable or unlicensed vehicles in a fully
enclosed building such as a garage or remove from the
property. When repairing your car in your front
driveway, repairs must be completed within 72 hours.
Commercial Trucks and Trailers
Trucks or trailers exceeding 10,000 lbs. (GVWR) cannot
be parked on residential streets. Trucks and trailers
exceeding 7,000 lbs. (GVWR) can only be parked on
residential property in a fully enclosed garage.

Generally speaking, cities will have ordinances regarding unregistered vehicles...I've seen that a lot.
Many communities will have rules about commercial vehicles on private property, but you don't mention if this is a commercial trailer or not.
Did someone tell you its illegal? They're probably correct in that you might be subject to a fine of some kind.

That's going to depend on local laws. If your neighborhood has a Homeowner's Association, that may be an issue as well.
Anyways, you didn't tell us where you are and you didn't tell us what kind of trailer (utility trailer? boat trailer? horse trailer? Camper that your Uncle Jethro is living in?) so unfortunately we can't really help you other than to research your local ordinances.
