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.
