The tag shop=caravan is used to map a business that primarily sells recreational vehicles (RV) such as towed caravans (a.k.a travel trailers, pop-tops, camper trailers, tent trailers, 5th wheelers etc); powered, self-propelled motorhomes (camper vans, expedition vehicles, truck trailers / slide-ons etc); & similar types of vehicle.

For ease, on this page they are all referred to as caravans.

A place may deal with only one of these types of vehicle, or multiple types.

They may also repair &/or service caravans, & sell & install accessories or parts. A dealer may sell from one place, but carry out servicing, & install accessories, at a different location.

For a place that primarily sells mobile- or manufactured-homes, which are intended to be permanently, or semi-permanently, located in one spot, see shop=mobile_home

How to map

Draw as an area around the area outline or set a node on the office. Tag it with shop=caravan.
