No, I've tried to set it up selling (dealer) as well as parts, repair &
rental. Any other options you can think of, or better ways to word things?

Couple of people have suggested that & I've asked some questions about
"how" but no feedback yet

motorised=yes / no?

propulsion=towed / motorised?

Possibly a separate page again for shop=motorhome? (I think that would be a
good coverall term?)

It's also, at least in the US, very common for a dealer

But if we use a separate page, won't you have the same problem that you'll
only be able to find one or the other?

As I mentioned earlier, if we had

caravan:type=caravan / motorhome / camper_trailer

would you be able to search for the type you want?

So, any thoughts?



PS How you going using Warin's suggestion to create pages? :-)
