About this RV

Aloha, meet Carlos Vantana. This smooth low rider will get you around the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii with class and style. No need to waste money on expensive rooms and rental cars here. You and Carlos can experience all the wonder and lore this island has to offer in one convenient and economical package.

Relax on a tropical beach, stargaze atop one of the world's largest volcanoes or cruise down lush jungle roads. Carlos is down for whatever. He sleeps two comfortably on a full-size memory foam mattress and keeps all your secrets to himself with blackout curtains all around.

The interior is equipped with dimmable lights and auxiliary power, meaning you can charge phones, laptops etc. using USB outlets. There is even an inverter for AC power if needed. Inside you will also find a cooler to store food and drinks, a trash can, basic cleaning supplies for all you clean freaks out there and plenty of storage space under and beside the bed.

Your rental includes:

- Clean sheets, blankets, pillows and pillow cases

- 2 beach towels

- 2 bath towels

- Cabin Fan

- Cooler

- USB Charging Ports

- Inverter

- Bluetooth Speaker

We also offer additional Add-On Items so you can customize your camping experience. Why not include these items with every rental you ask? Great question! Its so we can keep our base rental price as low as possible. Also, as with any camper van, storage space is limited and we have found that some renters prefer the extra storage. If you want to take extras with you, we have plenty of options to choose from:

- Surfboard

- Snorkeling Gear

- Beach Chairs

- Portable Grill and Cooking Utensils

- Easy-Up

There are plenty of county beach and private campsites on the island to stay overnight. Some may require reservations and/or permits so we recommend planning ahead. is a great resource for local camping info

Blanca has some dents and dings, doors that don't work, and will pinch your arm if you rest it on your open drivers side window, but she'll get you wherever you want to go. She has great brakes, a whisper quiet engine that has all the power you need, and a dream of a mattress to sleep on. If you can get past the cosmetic issues, you will have an excellent time! Pic is from the Green Sand Beach trail head. She had no problem getting up and down that slope to the ocean!

Everything went smooth with the van and with the host. Super available, flexible, quick response and accurate listing.

Nothing to complain and the best way to visit Big Island!

Would recommend 100%.

We loved our time in the van! Rob was easy to communicate with and very accommodating to our schedule. The van was super comfortable and had great extra amenities (toilet paper, cleaning supplies, etc). Would definitely recommend the van for touring the beautiful big island.
