Perhaps the biggest problem with owning a motorhome is the cost. Because most people can only manage a few weeks usage each year, owning a vehicle that probably cost between £10k and £50k can become an unaffordable luxury.
The reality is that it often makes more financial sense to rent a motorhome or campervan than to buy one. However, we all like to make our moho’s our own — I know I certainly do.
One solution to this problem is to rent out your motorhome, rather than paying to rent someone else’s.
Of course, most of us don’t want to have to setup a rental business and market our motorhome, even if we are happy to accept the extra wear and tear on our pride and joy.
Given all of this, I was very interested to learn about a new business called Goboony which allows motorhome owners to rent out their motorhomes. Goboony is a Dutch firm which now operates in the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and the UK.
The company’s website claims to have the largest selection of rental motorhomes in the UK. Although I haven’t used this service myself, most of the user reviews on the website seem positive.
If you’re a motorhome owner or are thinking about buying a motorhome, I think that Goboony could certainly be worth considering as a way of cutting the cost of owning a motorhome.
Disclosure: I was not paid for this post and have no commercial relationship with Goboony.
