Most of the problems have been sorted by a little bit of playing, plus an
extra couple of fields added.

Languages - how do I edit them all out?

Still have to get rid of all the language options though & can't see any
way of doing that?

I wouldn't worry or stress too much about the word "template"

As Warin suggested, I just went to shop=car, "Edit source", copied the
entire page, pasted it as a new text document (I use Open Office but I'd
think any "Word" program would work), made the necessary changes of
changing car to caravan etc, searched shop=caravan in the OSM wiki with
nothing found, created the new page, copy / pasted my document, preview,
save & done! (Apart from going back in a dozen times to tweak things!)

*Very* straight forward & simple! :-)

I recently asked how to tag a caravan dealer & someone suggested
shop=caravan as it was already in use. I then created this page to give a
reference for people to find.

Um? Yes, I put them all together because I thought they all "sort of" fit
together, but I can see your point.

Possibly something like caravan:type=caravan / motorhome / Winnebago /
camper trailer etc, but then you get to the problem of what is difference
between a camper van, motorhome & Winnebago?
