GoCamp, LLC provides an online platform that connects “Owners” of camper vans listed on our website (www.gocampcampervans.com) (the “Site”) with “Renters” seeking to book those camper vans (the “Services”).
Services Provided by GoCamp and Relationship to Third Party Sites
Owners submit information to GoCamp about their camper vans. GoCamp creates listings on behalf of Owners, and handles all rental inquiries on behalf of Owners. Renters may learn about and book camper vans using our Services. Once a connection has been facilitated by GoCamp, the rental takes place directly between the Owner and Renter.
When requesting a listing on GoCamp, Owners also receive a secondary listing on Outdoorsy (www.outdoorsy.co), which uses Wheelbase (www.wheelbasepro.com) rental management software. So, when Renters book a camper van through GoCamp, the transaction is processed by Outdoorsy as a third-party service provider to GoCamp. By using the Services, you expressly agree to Outdoorsy’s and Wheelbases’s terms of service (available at www.outdoorsy.co/help/article/terms-of-service/) (“Outdoorsy’s Terms”).
You understand and agree that your obligations under Outdoorsy’s and Wheelbase’s terms and conditions supplement your obligations under GoCamp’s Terms. Additionally, nothing in Outdoory’s or Wheelbase’s terms and conditions acts as a waiver by GoCamp or otherwise relieves you of any obligation under GoCamp’s Terms. If there is a direct conflict between GoCamp’s Terms and those of Outdoorsy and/or Wheelbase, GoCamp’s Terms prevail.
GoCamp does not own, rent, re-rent, or otherwise control the camper vans listed on the Site. GoCamp simply connects Owners and Renters. Accordingly, you understand and agree that GoCamp is not a party to any agreements entered into between Owners and Renters, nor is GoCamp an insurer. GoCamp has no control over the conduct of Owners, Renters, and third-party service providers and disclaims all liability for claims or damages arising from or related to Owner, Renter, or third-party service providers’ conduct.
Modifications and Changes
GoCamp reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify the Services or to modify these Terms at any time and without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Site or provide you with notice of the modification. By accessing the Site or using the Services after we have posted a modification on the Site or have provided you with other notice of a modification, you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to stop accessing the Site and using the Services.

In order to adhere to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we will not knowingly collect any Personal Information from individuals under 13. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has accessed the Site or provided us with Personal Information without the parent’s or guardian’s consent, he or she should contact us.

Use of the Services
When you rent a camper van through the Site, you warrant and represent the following:
- You hold a current, valid (non-temporary) U.S. issued driver’s license, or, if you hold a foreign-issued driver’s license, you can provide your passport and a photograph of your foreign license.
- You are at least 25 years of age.
- You have been a U.S. or foreign-licensed driver for at least three years.
- You understand that camper vans require more skill and expertise to operate safely than a passenger car, that a camper van requires more clearance above, in front of, behind, and beside it to operate safely, and you must use mirrors and direct visual verification to maintain knowledge of the location of adjacent vehicles and obstacles on the roadway.
And, you agree to the following:
- You will provide complete and accurate Personal Information (including your Driver’s License information) for use of the Services, as well as for DMV Verification through Outdoorsy.
- If you have two or more major moving violations or any DUIs on your record, GoCamp or Outdoorsy may prohibit you from booking a camper van through the Services. If you fail the DMV check you will receive a full refund from GoCamp.
- You are solely responsible for the passengers on board your camper van as well as the conduct of those passengers, and you will confirm that both the driver and passengers are properly using seat belts while the vehicle is in motion.
- You will comply with Outdoorsy’s Terms, including for rental liability, damage to vans, maintenance and breakdown, right of possession, hauling and delivery, and other general requirements.
When you list a camper van on the Site, you represent and warrant the following:
- The information you provide about the camper van to be listed is truthful and accurate, including, but not limited to, the value, location, size, features, availability, pricing, and add-ons offered. Renters will be able to rely on the information in your listing when booking and using your camper van via the Site and Services.
- Any listing created by you or on your behalf (i) is complete and accurate, including with respect to the characteristics of your camper van; (ii) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (iii) will (a) be in compliance with all applicable laws, tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any vehicle included in a listing you request, including, but not limited to, insurance requirements, Department of Motor Vehicle regulations, zoning laws, and laws governing rentals and operation of camper vans and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties.
And, you agree to the following:
- Your listings may be made publicly available on the Site and Outdoorsy’s website. By creating a listing, you grant GoCamp a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use, display, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, store, and prepare derivative works of your listing content in connection with the Services and to promote GoCamp, your listing, or the Services in general, in any formats and through any channels, including across any GoCamp or third-party website or advertising medium. We claim no ownership rights in your content.
- You are responsible for any and all listings created by you or on your behalf, and it is your responsibility to check the accuracy of all such listings.
- GoCamp does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as an Owner. If a Renter requests a booking of your van and uses your van, any agreement you enter into with the Renter is between you and the Renter and GoCamp is not a party thereto.
- You are solely responsible for determining your applicable tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors, including any applicable taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable taxes in your listing(s). GoCamp does not offer tax-related advice.
Outdoorsy as Payment Agent
By using the Services, each Owner and Renter appoints Outdoorsy as their limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payment from each Renter on behalf of each Owner as provided in Outdoorsy’s Terms.
The Owners, not GoCamp, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any vehicles reserved through the Services. If you, as a Renter, choose to enter into a transaction with an Owner for the booking of a camper van, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Owner and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with renting the camper van as imposed by the Owner. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not GoCamp, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that GoCamp is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its obligations hereunder to pay rental Fees to the applicable Owner, GoCamp disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.
Owners may choose to include a security deposit requirement in their listings. Outdoorsy will obtain pre-authorization of the Renter’s credit card according to Outdoorsy’s terms. GoCamp does not administer or accept claims by Owners related to security deposits and disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
General information about rental rates can be found on van profiles. Specific information about rental costs are defined in individual rental contracts between Renters and Owners.
Outdoorsy deducts service fees from Renters’ payments to Owners for confirmed bookings and remits the remainder to GoCamp according to Outdoorsy’s Terms. GoCamp in turn remits the remainder to Owners according to GoCamp’s Owner Policies.
Renters may purchase insurance from GoCamp and/or Outdoorsy as provided in GoCamp’s and Outdoorsy’s respective Terms. Renters are responsible for all damages or expenses related to the camper van rental, including damage to the vehicle, missing equipment, down time, theft, vandalism, and the van Owner’s administrative expenses connected with loss irrespective of the cause of damage or loss or the negligence or lack thereof of Renter. Renters and Owners should complete a walk-through of the rental, noting any and all defects or damage prior to Renter’s pick-up and drop-off.
Cancellations and Refunds
If, as a Renter, you wish to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Services, GoCamp’s Renter Policies regarding cancellations and refunds will apply to such cancellation. If an Owner cancels a confirmed booking made via the Services, GoCamp will refund van payments to the applicable Renter.
