Below are Some Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an age requirement to rent from you?
We try to work with clients who are actually 25 years and above due to our insurance coverage restrictions. However, depending on your situation, whenever we can, we always strive to be flexible.
In case you are below twenty-five, 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 roof top tents kids friendly?
Certainly! Please note that using our rooftop camping vehicles you’ll have to climb a small ladder. If this is a problem, we offer an extra camping tent with every package which you may put up on the ground. This may be much more comfortable for you and also your young ones.
How many people can your camping trucks accommodate?
We are able to accommodate three people at most, though in case there are more within your party, we do offer an additional tent, as well. With this, we are able to allow for as much as 5 individuals. Each of our trucks has 5 seatbelts.

Perfect Locations For Camping Out On Kauai & Camping Permits FAQ
Can I visit any beach front to camp?
You can drive up to any beach, however, you can only put up your camp in designated camping grounds. Here on Kauai, this is the standard procedure. We’ll provide you with a list of the greatest places to check out and to camp in. Please be aware that driving on the beaches is not permitted on Kauai.
Are we allowed to camp in the wild or can we only go to official camping sites? If so, how much is the cost?
No, wild camping isn’t allowed on the island of Kauai. You should only camp in designated locations with a current camping permit. The associated fee is about $3 per night in most Kauai county campgrounds, but private campgrounds could be a bit more. One advantage of these camping grounds is that you have complete access to amenities, such as showers, washrooms and picnic kitchen tables. Please keep in mind that if you opt to go camping on the county campsites, you are only permitted to set up the ground tent.

Do we have to get Kauai camping permits before we arrive in Kauai?
It is a better to obtain your Kauai camping permits before your trip. For the majority of private campsites, which we always recommend first, you may get your licenses on the internet and also in person in the designated office.
If you decide to camp at a county campsite and use a ground tent, you may obtain permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” webpage.
Non-residents have to pay three dollars per night beforehand. Accepted payment methods with this particular application are cashier’s checks as well as money orders. However, it’s not necessary to reserve your camping licenses prior to your arrival. You could also obtain them at the designated permit offices in Kauai, which is usually easier.
What is the processing time for getting camping permits?
If you choose to go to a state or private campsite, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you choose to camp at a county campground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, however it can take quite some time to receive your permits. Permits can be bought at the permit offices on Kauai upon arrival; in-person permits are issued 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!
