Construction / Civil Engineering
Dutch term or phrase: Standplaats
Voor het woord "standplaats", hoewel het eenvoudig genoeg lijkt, vind ik geen vertaling die naar mijn gevoel aan navolgende definitie voldoet:

"Een standplaats is een type Verblijfsobject en is een terrein of gedeelte daarvan dat bestemd is voor het permanent plaatsen van een niet direct en niet duurzaam met de aarde verbonden ruimte."

Hierbij kan men dus vooral denken aan een standplaats voor een caravan.

pitch, site

In the context of caravanning and camping in general, the place you put it is called a pitch.

-> "41. the specific location in which a person or object is placed or stationed; allotted or assigned place. "

I'm not sure if 'pitch' is used like this in US Eng., "site" is more likely, I think, but I stand open to correction by US Eng. speakers!

I'll make a formal answer of my discussion entry, but I think Chris' answer might be more appropriate.
