Cabana Raises $10M in Series A Funding


Cabana, a Seattle, WA-based travel tech startup that has built a fleet of mobile hotel rooms, raised $10M in Series A funding.

The round was co-led by Craft Ventures and Goldcrest Capital with participation from Launch, Castor Ventures, Gaingels, Nordic Eye, and other strategic angels and syndicates.

Led by Scott Kubly, founder and CEO, Cabana is a travel-tech startup focused on vanlife. The company has expanded its locations from the Seattle market to Los Angeles, growing its fleet size to 35 vans, and now has an employee base of over 15 individuals to support operations.

Between launching special holiday packages, running giveaways, and testing various offerings, the team launched Cabana Concierge — a custom itinerary service provided to customers for no additional cost, curated from a questionnaire filled in with the traveler’s preferences.

The company intends to use the funds to further expand in new markets and add 100 vehicles to the fleet, with plans to launch a four-passenger van that will allow families with young children, or groups of close friends, to enjoy the Cabana experience.
