Would I be unreasonable to park a trailor or caravan on the road outside my house? It is hard to find a space on as is but I can't afford to rent a garage and only have one car (the neibours have 3). As an aside... Does anyone know if you can leave a trailor or caravan on the road unhitched from a car?

I wouldn't of thought so but not sure what the law says

If I lived on road that was hard to find a space on I would be a tad pissed off if someone parked a caravan on it. Finding somewhere to park it that doesn't encroach on your neighbours should be part of the financial implications of owning a caravan

I have a feeling you can't. It doesn't have tax. You never see them parked on roads. Try the camping page?

Pay for storage. As soon as it's gone every one knows you are away. It's like an "Empty house" advert.

Just goggled the caravan club so might be wrong. Look up your highway code. In theory you can but if someone complains you have 28 days to remove it or else it taken from you. However it needs lights on it every night similar to a skip at night that needs to turned off during the day. You need insurance. However i dont think its something you do if you want good neighbour relationship especially if theres lack f parking already. There is strick rules according to the caravan club. No idea re trailers.

As far as I know you are fine parking it but realistically it is an instant empty house please break into the house sign once it goes away

Caravan storage isn't that expensive and worth it as it will be more secure from anyone breaking into it than parked on the road

Are you talking about a trailer or a caravan, or both? Either way, I'd be pissed off if one of our neighbours did this. Presumably your trailer/caravan would be stuck on the road constantly, so where are your neighbours visitors supposed to park?

Well the neibours could move one of there 3 cars to let the visitors park grin

I know it is a bit mean spirited but as the car and caravan are small and take up the space at the ground of my house only I don't think I would feel too bad... There 3 cars are a huge van and 2 estates... And they use none of them for work shock

My mums neighbour has two. It is fucking annoying when parking is sparse, but i dont think it breaks any laws. Just be prepared for all your neighbours to hope someone torches it! grin

Anyway, I probably won't- I am just stroppy as I had to walk 10 min to get back to my house as they had visitors.

If you do invest in some good security for it. Caravans are very nickable even with a hitch lock. You need something like a Nemesis FullStop wheel lock. I don't think you'd get caravan insurance if you were going to park it in the road.

Find proper caravan storage. We put ours on a farm for £5 a week.
