Housecar is a sharing platform for motorhomes and caravans in Sweden, Norway and Finland. We match vacant vehicles with people who want to rent them.
There are many motorhomes and caravans in the Nordic countries and many who want to rent. In 2017 we discovered that it was anything but easy to rent. Scattered ads online resulted in many inquiries - and many refusals. And all this took a lot of time.
Even though we eventually found a vehicle, we felt a certain fear of being cheated. There must be a better way, we thought. Why is there no Airbnb for motorhomes and caravans?
The freedom with motorhomes and caravans
We want more people to discover the joy of motorhomes and caravans - without having to buy their own vehicle. It's a huge freedom to just drive away, stop anywhere you want and spend the night comfortably in the middle of nowhere. Everything is there. You can camp, hike in the mountains, stay in cities and discover the feeling of freedom with camping - all year round.
Sharing is double joy
We thought it felt like a huge waste of resources that most motorhomes and caravans are unused most of the year. Most are only used for a few weeks a year. This feels strange at a time when resource utilization is high on the agenda and the sharing economy is growing ever larger. The sharing economy has just begun, and we see everything from sharing your apartment with others, to sharing your car, boat or lawn mower. The more vehicles we share, the fewer new ones need to be manufactured. At the same time as we save on the world's resources, we give more people the opportunity to experience the joy of motorhomes and caravans.
Therefore, our starting point is that the vehicle owners with us want to rent out their motorhome and caravan as much as possible. With us, you can participate and contribute to a slightly more sustainable society.
