Commonly Asked Questions
Is there an age requirement to rent from you?
We try to do business with clients who are actually twenty-five years and older due to our insurance policy restrictions. On the other hand, depending on your situation, whenever we can, we always strive to be flexible.
If you are below 25 years, try checking with your insurer to see if you would be covered for rental vehicles, particularly for pick-up trucks, and then contact us.
Are your roof top tent campers family friendly?
Absolutely! Please note that with our rooftop campers you will need to climb one small ladder. If this sounds like a concern, we also offer an extra camping tent with every package which you can set up on the ground. This could be more comfortable for both you and also your young children.
How many people can your camper trucks fit?
The camping trucks sleep 3 people maximum, though if there are more in your group, we do provide an additional tent, as well. With this, we can easily accommodate up to five individuals. Each of our vehicles has 5 seatbelts.
Do you have surfboards?
Certainly, Kauai Rooftop Campers offers surfboards & boogie boards and fins upon request for a small fee. Just tell us up-front if you would like to rent one, so we can add it to your reservation and have it ready for you at departure.
Do we get a guide or even a map with the greatest locations to check out on Kauai?
Certainly, each vehicle has a Kauai guidebook which details maps and information on the best spots to check out & go camping on Kauai.
Perfect Places For Camping On Kauai & Information Regarding Camping Permits
Am I able to visit any beach for camping?
You may drive up to any beach, however, you should only put up your camp in designated camping grounds. This is the usual practice here on Kauai. We’ll supply you with a list of the ideal 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 can we only go to official camping grounds? If so, what is the fee?
No, wild camping is not allowed in Kauai. You may only go camping in official locations with secured camping permits. The fee is approximately $3 per night in the majority of Kauai county campgrounds, but private campgrounds may be a bit more. The good thing about these camping grounds is that you have complete access to facilities, like showers, bathrooms & picnic dining tables. Please remember that if you choose to camp on the county campsites, you are only allowed to set up the ground tent.

Do we need to get Kauai camping permits before we arrive in Kauai?
It is definitely a better to obtain your Kauai camping permits before your arrival. For most private campgrounds, which we always recommend first, you can secure your permits on the internet and also in person in the designated office.
If you choose to camp at a county campsite and use a ground tent, you can request permits by visiting the “County of Kauai Camping Information” web page.
Non-residents must pay three dollars per night in advance. Payment methods accepted with this particular application are money orders and cashier’s checks. But you don’t necessarily have to reserve your camping licenses prior to your planned arrival. You could also obtain them at the different permit offices on the island, which is typically easier.
What is the processing time for getting camping permits?
Whether you decide to camp at a state or private camping ground, both online and in person reservations are possible. If you decide to camp at a county camping ground, mail-in applications are easy to submit, but it can take quite a while to get your permits. You may choose to receive your permits upon arrival to Kauai at the different 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!
