Here are Some Frequently Asked Questions
What is the minimum age to rent from you?
We try to work with clients who are twenty-five years and older because of our insurance policy restrictions. On the other hand, based on your needs, whenever possible, we strive to be flexible.
If you are below 25 years, consider checking in with your insurer to find out if you would be covered for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can contact us.
Are your rooftop tents kids friendly?
Indeed! Please note that using our rooftop camping vehicles you would need to climb a little ladder. If this sounds like a problem, we offer an extra camping tent with every package which you could put up on the ground beside the camping vehicle. This can be more convenient for you as well as your little ones.
What is the max. capacity of your trucks?
The camping trucks sleep 3 individuals maximum, although if there are more within your group, we do provide an additional tent, as well. With this, we are able to fit about five people. All of our vehicles have 5 seatbelts.
Can you provide surfboards?
Absolutely yes, Kauai Rooftop Campers offers both surfboards & boogie boards as well as fins on request for a fee. Just let us know in advance if you want to rent one, so we can add it to your booking and have it ready for you at departure.
Can we receive a travel guide or perhaps a map with the nicest places to explore on Kauai?
Sure, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to see and go camping on Kauai.
Best Locations For Camping On Kauai & Camping Permits FAQ
Can I go to any beach for camping?
You can go to any beach, however, you should only put up your camp in official camping grounds. This is the standard practice here on Kauai. We will give you a list of the greatest locations to visit and also to camp in. Please be aware that driving a vehicle on the beaches isn’t permitted on Kauai.
Are we allowed to camp in the wild or are we only able to visit designated camping grounds? If so, how much will it cost?
No, wild camping isn’t permitted on the island of Kauai. You may only camp in specified locations with secured camping permits. The fee is roughly $3 per night stay in many Kauai county parks, but private camp sites may be a bit more. The good thing about these campsites is that you have full access to facilities, including showers, washrooms and picnic tables. Please note that if you decide to go camping on the county campgrounds, you are only allowed to use the ground tent.

Do we need to get Kauai camping permits before we arrive in Kauai?
It is a good idea to get your Kauai camping permits before your trip. For the majority of private campsites, which we always recommend first, you can secure your licenses online and also in person in the respective office.
If you choose to camp at a county campground and use a ground tent, you may ask for permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” page.
In advance, the fees are $3 per night for non-residents of Hawaii. Accepted payment methods with this application are cashier’s checks and money orders. However, it isn’t absolutely necessary to book your camping permits before your planned arrival. You could also get them at the different permit offices in Kauai, which is typically easier.
How long will it take to obtain the camping permits?
If you decide to camp at a state or private campground, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you choose to camp at a county campsite, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite a while to receive your permits. Permits can be obtained at the permit offices on Kauai upon arrival; in-person permits are given on-the-spot.

Our Happy Clients!
Exploring Kauai with a rooftop camper is a fun and unique way to explore this beautiful island! Our family of 4 spent 12 fabulous days exploring and camping. The extra tent with the rooftop provided plenty of space for us…we had an amazing time! All communication with Jonathan and Jamie was smooth and easy. They are lovely people who genuinely want to provide a great experience.
Jamie and Jonathan were excellent hosts! Even though they were on vacation, Jonathan made all accommodations very easy and helped us with every step. Note: if you are under 25, make sure to let them know to make sure you are covered by insurance! Jonathan helped us work it out and we had a great time

Jamie and Jonathan are by far the very best experience with Airbnb we have ever had. Truly generous human beings with big hearts. They provided wonderful suggestions, amenities, and a wonderful 5 star experience. We will certainly rent again. For our first experience in Hawaii, they made sure it was second to none. If you’re coming to Hawaii to truly experience nature and looking for a ‘no nonsense’ and easy process to explore the island the way it was meant to be, you could not attain better hosts.
We had such an amazing trip with Jamie’s camper! Jamie and Jonathan were both so kind and took their time to explain to us the ins and out of our camper. Communication was easy and the beaches they recommend we visit were like paradise! Will rent again from them when we come back for sure!
The BEST way to experience the beautiful garden island! Not only a great service–transportation doubling as your lodging–but wonderful and warm hosts. Jonathan and Jamie were so kind and helpful. An absolutely wonderful trip to Kauai–thank you both!
