[Tagging] Creating shop=caravan

I could live with two pages. A shop=caravan and a
shop=recreational_vehicles cross-referenced to one another. It will be
clear from the description that such recreational_vehicles contain
kitchens, bathrooms, living quarters, and are not towed while the caravan
page can specify the same but be restricted to towed, non-powered trailers.
People on both sides of the ocean will have trouble with one or the other
(both?) definitions but I don't see any other way through this semantic
stalemate.

Now, if we could only get rid of tourism_caravan_site and replace it with
tourism=campground. Sigh. That'll never happen but it should.
