Wie aufregend ist der Gedanke, irgendwo auf der Welt ein Wohnmobil zu mieten und sich auf eine fantastische Reise zu begeben? Das ist ein wahres Abenteuer: idyllische, unberührte Natur, kleine Städte voller Leben und Kultur, selbst entscheiden, ob du bleibst oder gehst. Auf einer Wohnmobilreise wirst du die echte Freiheit erleben. Wir von Goboony wollen jedem die Möglichkeit geben, diese Freiheit zu erfahren, oder sie mit anderen zu teilen.
Goboony ist eine Internet-Platform, auf der sich Wohnmobilbesitzer und Reisende treffen können. Ob du dir ein luxuriöses Wohnmobil mit allen Einrichtungen und Annehmlichkeiten, oder einen etwas einfacheren, aber klassischen VW-Bus wünschst: Bei Goboony bist du an der richtigen Adresse!
Mark de Vos
Kaufte zwei (!) Wohnmobile, welche dann doch nur in der Garage standen, und erfand deshalb Goboony. Früher war er kaufmännischer Leiter einer Auto-Importgruppe, und danach spezialisierte er sich als Unternehmensberater auf Wachstum. Hat ein flottes Mundwerk, sieht die Dinge mit Humor, und tut gerne fünfzehn Dinge gleichzeitig.
Der kreative Kopf hinter Goboony. In der Onlinewelt ist er in seinem Element, und hat schon verschiedene Start-ups auf ihrem Weg von der Idee zum florierenden Geschäft unterstützt. Um es anders auszudrücken: he gets things done! Aber ist auch oft hinter dem Klavier zu finden (er spielt in einer Jazz-Band) oder, wenn die Sonne scheint, auf seinem Segelboot.

Jeden Tag klingt es aus seiner Ecke: „Hey, habt ihr schon das neueste auf unserer Seite gesehen?“ Er hat die Gabe, alles, was sich unsere Kunden wünschen, in praktische Funktionen umzusetzen.

'In the boonies' ist eine Redensart aus Neuseeland und bedeutet soviel wie ‘mache eine Reise, finde deinen eigenen Weg und lass dich von niemandem leiten‘. Das ist genau das Gefühl, welches du bekommst, wenn du mit einem Wohnmobil unterwegs bist. Kombiniert mit zwei Abenteuer- und Wohnmobilfans, Mark und Foppe (Gründer von Goboony), die sich auf einer Wohnmobilreise durch Neuseeland kennen lernten, war die Idee für Goboony plötzlich geboren.
