    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

      Guess you've never lived in a HOA community. They give "crap" and can (and do) impose fines for offenses.

    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.

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

    My city, Oakland, CA.:

    >PARKING

    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.
