Depends on the local use.
A caravan shop in one area of the world could be expected to only do 
caravans. In another part of the world to do both caravans and motor 
homes. In another part of the world tents etc.

"sells" would be a tag I would use to describe what a shop sells.

"service" is a tag used to describe "highway=service".
Should it be used with other things? Or is there some other word OSM can 
use here?
