Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any age restrictions to rent from you?
We try to do business with clients who are 25 years and above because of our insurance policy restrictions. But, based on your circumstances, whenever possible, we strive to be flexible.
If you are younger than twenty-five, try contacting your insurer to determine if you would be insured for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, after which you can call us.
Would you be able to accommodate families with kids?
Certainly! Please keep in mind that with our rooftop campers you’ll have to climb one small ladder. If this sounds like a problem, we offer an extra tent with each package which you can easily set up on the ground beside your camper vehicle. This could be much more comfortable for you and also your little ones.
What is the maximum capacity of your camper vehicles?
Our camper trucks fit 3 people maximum, although if there are more within your party, we do offer an extra tent, too. With this, we are able to fit as much as five individuals. All of our trucks have 5 seatbelts.
What about surfboards?
Absolutely yes, Kauai Rooftop Campers offers surfboards and boogie boards and also fins upon request for a small fee. Simply tell us in advance if you would like to rent one, so that we can add it to your booking and have it ready for you at departure.
Do we get a travel guide or even a map with the best hiking trails and beaches to explore on Kauai?
Sure, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to check out & go camping on Kauai.
Perfect Spots For Camping Outdoors On Kauai & Specifics About Camping Permits
Can I head to any beach front for camping?
You could drive up to any beach, but you should only put up your camp in designated camping grounds. This is the typical practice here on Kauai. We will give you a list of the top locations to explore and also to camp in. Please be aware that driving on the beaches isn’t allowed on Kauai.
Is “wild camping” allowed or are we only able to visit designated camping grounds? If so, how much is the cost?
No, wild camping is not permitted on the island of Kauai. You should only camp in specific areas with secured camping permits. The associated fee is approximately $3 per night in the majority of Kauai county campgrounds, but private campgrounds could be a little more. One particular advantage of these camping grounds is that you will have complete access to amenities, like washrooms, showers & picnic kitchen tables. Please keep in mind that if you opt to go camping on the county campsites, you are only permitted to use the ground tent.

Before our arrival in Kauai, do we have to get a Kauai camping permit?
It is a good idea to obtain your Kauai camping permits before your journey. For the majority of private campgrounds, which we always recommend first, you can get your licenses online and also on-the-spot in the respective office.
If you choose to camp at a county campground and use a ground tent, you may request permits by going to the “County of Kauai Camping Information” webpage.
Non-residents have to pay three dollars per night beforehand. Payment methods accepted with this application are cashier’s checks as well as money orders. But you don’t have to reserve your camping permits prior to your planned arrival. You could also obtain them at the designated permit offices in Kauai, which is typically easier.
How much time will it take to get the camping permits?
If you decide to go to a state or private campground, both online and in person reservations are possible. Please note that if you decide to go to a county camping ground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, however it might take quite some time to get your permits. You might receive your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the designated permit offices on the island; in-person you will get them 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!
