Is it legal for someone to charge me to get my truck off their property?

My uncle by marriage said I could put my truck on his property no problem. Now that I’m divorced and the truck has been sitting there for 6 years he says i have to pay him $1000 to get it back. Do I have to pay him to get my own truck back when he said I could put it there?
