Are there any age restrictions to rent from you?
We try to work with clients who are twenty-five years and above due to our insurance policy restrictions. Nevertheless, based upon your circumstances, whenever we can, we try to be flexible.
If you are younger than 25 years, consider checking with your insurance provider to determine if you would be covered for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can call us.
Are you able to accommodate families with kids?
Of course! Please note that with our rooftop camping vehicles you will need to climb up a small ladder. If this sounds like an issue, we also provide an extra camping tent with each package which you could set up on the ground next to the camper vehicle. This may be much more comfortable for you and also your children.
What is the max. capacity of your camper trucks?
We can fit 3 individuals at most, though if there are more in your group, we do offer an additional tent, as well. With this, we are able to fit about 5 individuals. All of our trucks have 5 seatbelts.
What about surfboards?
Absolutely yes, Kauai Rooftop Campers offers both surfboards and boogie boards and fins upon request for a small fee. Just let us know beforehand if you would like to rent one, so that we can add it to your reservation and have it ready for you at departure.
Can we get a travel guide or perhaps a map with the nicest beaches & hiking trails to visit on Kauai?
Yes, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to visit & camp out on Kauai.
Kauai Camping Guide & Camping Permits FAQ
Am I able to visit any beach front for camping?
You could go to any beach, but you should only set up your camp in designated camping grounds. Here on Kauai, this is the standard practice. We will give you a list of the best places to explore and also to go camping. Please be aware that driving a vehicle on the beaches isn’t permitted on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” allowed or are we just able to go to official camping sites? If so, how much does it cost?
No, wild camping isn’t allowed on the island of Kauai. You can only go camping in specific locations with a current camping permit. The fee is approximately $3 per night stay in many Kauai county campgrounds, but private camp sites may be a bit more. One particular advantage of these camping grounds is that you will have full access to amenities, like washrooms, showers and picnic dining tables. Please be aware that if you decide to go camping on the county campsites, you are only allowed to set up the ground tent.

Before our arrival in Kauai, do we need to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is definitely a better to get your Kauai camping permits before your journey. For the majority of private campgrounds, which we always recommend first, you can secure your permits on the internet and also on-the-spot in the designated office.
If you decide to stay at a county campground and set up a ground tent, you can request permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” page.
In advance, the fees are $3 per night for nonresidents of Hawaii. Payment methods accepted with this application are bank checks as well as money orders. However, you don’t have to book your camping licenses before your arrival. You could also obtain them at the designated permit offices on the island, which is usually easier.
What is the processing time for obtaining camping permits?
If you decide to go to a state or private camping ground, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you decide to go to a county campground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite some time to obtain your permits. Permits can be obtained at the permit offices on Kauai once you have arrived; in-person permits are issued right away.

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!
