In 2017 more than two million motorhomes were registered in Europe. Despite the massive growth in the number of motorhomes, roughly 2 million motorhomes are idle for an average of 11 months per year. A startup named Goboony has decided to get rid of this ‘idle capacity’ of motorhomes. It has raised € 579k for its online camper rental platform on the crowdfunding platform Symbid.
Onboarding key partners
Goboony rented out motorhomes on an average weekly rate of €795 per camper and customers typically rent out a camper for a period of eight weeks. Goboony’s strong growth means that it is able to partner with bigger brands in the space that complement its offering. It recently partnered with MyWheels, a car-sharing platform working in the Netherlands since 1993. MyWheels wants to focus on the further growth of their car sharing platform. The deal enables Goboony to take all campers of MyWheels and rent them out on their own platform.
