We loved the camper! The Big Island was perfect for this style of exploring and camping out. We had lots of people asking about the camper as we were going around the island. The camper is very easy and fast to set up in any condition, the mattress is also super comfortable and the views when you wake are can be as perfect as you make it! Mike provides everything you need with the camper, but even more has lots of good information for adventuring around the big and amazing island. Cheers for a great trip! Adam and Pamela

This rental literally MADE our trip around the Big Island so special. We had everything we needed to camp around the island after a quick stop to grab food. Communication from start to finish was excellent. Setup of all available equipment was quick and easy. We would HIGHLY recommend this rental to anyone interested in camping around the Big Island. We cannot wait to go back one day and add more to our Big Island Adventures!

Taking this truck out to explore the Big Island was phenomenal! Mike was incredible with quick communication and advice on places to camp around the island. We were sad to have to say goodbye to our little home on wheels after the end of the week, but we know we’ll definitely be back to take out the truck and explore again. Thanks so much for an unforgettable experience!

We had an excellent vacation. This is our second year camping out on the big island with Shawn’s truck and it was just as incredible and worth-while as the first time. We were discouraged in the beginning from a slight change in plans, but Shawn was super communicative and went above and beyond to offer a number of different ways to ameliorate the situation. I can’t imagine vacationing any other way!!
