OK, include them under type=* as either =mobile_home or =static

True, except:

https://www.google.com/search?newwindow=1&ei=zw09XJ7xIY2f9QP2q7DACQ&q=recreational+vehicles+gold+coast+australia&oq=recreationl+vehicles+gold+coast+australia&gs_l=psy-ab.3...0.0..484369...0.0..0.0.0.......0......gws-wiz.VVNuZaOLLuM
