It depends on what you mean by trailer park. For a place that is rented for 
a short term by the day or week to park your RV or towed camper in, I used 
tourism=caravan_site per 
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dcaravan_site .

For places called "mobile home parks", which are leased by the year (at 
least), in which to semi-permanently place a pre-manufactured (aka mobile) 
home that requires a great deal of work to move, I tag landuse=residential, 
and add it to a relation (with role=boundary) that is tagged:


These are sometimes grouped together with the first type, usually 
pejoratively. Having stayed in both types of places, they are nothing alike.

Definitely the latter - a mobile home park.
