About Goboony

How cool is it to rent a motorhome on the other side of the world and go on an awesome trip? Now that’s true adventure. Peaceful unknown natural areas, small towns full of culture, to decide whether you want to stay somewhere or not: during a motorhome holiday you experience true freedom! With Goboony we want to give everyone the possibility to experience the freedom or the possibility to share the freedom with fellow travellers.

Goboony is an online platform where motorhome owners and travellers meet. If you are looking for a super luxury motorhome with all kinds of facilities and extra’s or if you want a more simple but characteristic Volkswagen Campmobile: Goboony is the place to be.

Where does the name Goboony come from?

In the boonies is an expression from New Zealand which means ‘go on a journey, go your own way and don’t let anyone guide you’. That is exactly the feeling you get when travelling with a motorhome. Combine that with two enormous travel and motorhome fans, Mark and Foppe (founders of Goboony), who met during a journey through New-Zealand with a motorhome, and that’s when the idea for Goboony started.
