Led by several industry leaders from Germany and New Zealand as well by other notable investors, the funding will be used to support SHAREaCAMPER’s product development, recruitment, and expansion into new markets.
Operating a market worth $2.5 billion, and with over 20 million privately-owned campers worldwide, SHAREaCAMPER is ready to embrace and lead this exciting market.

“With this financing and experienced team of strategic investors on board, as well as the commitment from hundreds of motorhome owners, we are well-positioned to lead the market,” said CEO Jan Bartel. “We are committed to creating ‘customers for life’. This investment clearly shows that we are evolving as a company by expanding our offerings, pushing into new markets, and becoming a ‘beacon of light’ for employees as we continue to grow and innovate,” Bartel added
Based in Cologne, the company now has more than 25 employees and offices in Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.
