A quick check of Burlington, Ontario zoning ordinances shows them to be positively baroque! They will not even trap and remove raccoons or skunks, or allow a resident to do so, because trapping an animal and then releasing it far from where it was trapped is cruel to the animal. But that's beside the point.
Here's a copy of what they have to say about trailers and RV's (my parenthetical comments in red
2.8 Trailers and Recreation Vehicles
2.8.1 The following regulations apply to parking of trailers and recreation vehicles on lots for detached dwellings, semi-detached dwellings, street triplex dwellings, street triplex and fourplex dwellings and street townhouse dwellings, in all zones except RA, EP and RG zones:
(a) Any recreational vehicle, trailer or any load thereon including a boat, whether on or off a trailer or other supporting device, which does not exceed a height of 1.82m, may be parked or stored in any yard.(this would only apply to pop-up campers and some smaller boats; I'm 1.8m tall myself, and most RV's and many trailered boats are taller than I am.)
(b) Any recreational vehicle, trailer or any load thereon including a boat, whether on or off a trailer or other supporting device, which exceeds a height of 1.82m, may be parked or stored in any yard between May 1st and October 31st. At any other time such parking or storage is permitted only in yards other than a front yard or street side yard.
(c) Notwithstanding (b) above, the parking or storage of a recreational vehicle, trailer or any load thereon including a boat, whether on or off a trailer or other supporting device, which exceeds a height of 3.66 m, is prohibited.(Fortunately, and Airstream Interstate tops out at 2.94m, but this lets out most Class A's and 5th wheels)
(d) Parking and storage of recreation vehicles and trailers is not permitted within a visibility triangle, at street intersections and railway intersections.
I could not find anyplace that they define exactly what constitutes an RV.
