Yep, agree with you

To continue exploring that suggestion, we could create a new top-level tag,

Been thinking about exactly that overnight!

So, change this main page to shop=rv, with type=powered / towed; sells;
parts; rental etc etc; & also "See also" of 4WD / SUV see shop=car; quad
bikes see shop=motorbike etc

3 (?) other pages: shop=motorhome; shop=caravan; shop=travel_trailer (just
for those people who don't speak "English English"! :-)), with no details
except "See shop=rv"

Would that cover all the bases?
