Parking an airstream on my own property?

“I’ve looked all over the DC gov websites and can’t find the answer to this:

I’ve been offered a 25′ vintage airstream trailer by a relative. I have plenty of room to park this in my rowhouse’s back yard (zoned R-4). Is there any DC law/zoning requirement that would prevent this? Nobody would live in it, I would use it for vacations and maybe some extra storage space.

If the trailer is stationary, does it need to be tagged and insured? I want to be sure this is all covered before accepting the trailer. I don’t know what would prevent me from parking this on my own property but knowing DC I would be worried somebody would show up at my door with a fine and a red sticker.”
