Every time I read a post like this, I'm reminded of why I choose to move out of town and landed in the country, despite carrying the mortgage on two houses and all the headaches of maintaining 2 properties! I feel for ya! My rule of thumb has always been, "I sleep where I park my camper!" Kind of like my kids too. If my kids could not come into the "establishment" or the "business" neither would I.

I guess a lot of second rate Cities and Towns are scrambling for cash any way they can get it, legally or not. Here in Hellsville they send a summons for a "camera" violation whether is should of been sent or not. The shy folks pay it. When I was in business I had an E-350 cargo van for the employees to use and parked it in front of my house. A neighbor kept complaining and the cops would check it out but one told me it wasn't illegal to park it "anywhere on the public street". I still remember the slight grin he had that tipped me off. He was probably tired of coming out to check a complaint. After a week or so parking the van in front of the lady's house who complained, no more complaints.... A win for me and a win for a common sense cop..

If you had left it hooked to the truck you wouldn't have gotten a ticket.

I've usually bring my tt home from storage the day before I leave and bring it back the day after I return and have always worried that one of my neighbors would complain but so far so good. Sorry to hear about your ticket.

Glad I live in small-town America where you can park anything you own wherever you want on the property that you paid for and that you continue to pay taxes on.

Ugh. Frustrates me to think about somebody from the village board coming to MY house and telling me that we cant park our camper in our driveway.

You would have been SUBJECT to a ticket in Topeka also but would only get one if someone complained about the trailer. Not sure how it is in your city because that sort of laws are always local. Good luck / Skip

If the OP had parked it in the driveway they wouldnt have gotten cited for it. Cant leave a trailer unhitched on a town road where I live either. Otherwise every landscape trailer, boat, camper and even semi trailer could be left in the streets. Stinks the OP got a ticket but thats why the law is on the books. The license plate ticket seems worth fighting though.

I don't think you will get out of all of the ticket, but should be able to get the no plate part taken off, by taking all of the sales paper work and the temporary reg that was taped to window and was still good on the date the ticket was written with you when you go to pay the fine, sorry I still think you will have to pay for the parking part because the trailer was unhooked from your truck.

We live in the country on 50 wooded acres. I have two trailers parked by my garage. Three miles to the nearest town, 4 miles to the nearest RV dealer, 10 miles to Walmart and car dealers. Been here 14 years. Should have moved out of town long before I did even though I had a TC and a TT in the yard with no static from anybody. Small towns are a blessing to me and being just outside one is a bigger blessing.
