Billie is a badass van with a V10 sturdy engine, she can climb all over the island. A little rough on the outside so you blend in nicely, but comfy, cozy and vibey on the inside so you feel at home! She's fully self-sustained with an inverter that runs off the house battery which is charged by solar! This powers the 3.3 cubic foot fridge which has plenty of room for all of your food and nice cold beverages. There is ample storage under the bed and the rest of the van is room to move and stretch out. There is a 2 burner camp stove included with necessary cooking gear. Propane is available at Walmart in Hilo or Kona. She is easy to learn to drive since you are higher up on the road you can see everything around you! I am open to negotiating longer term rentals as well :) Ask me anything about Billie or the island and I will answer as well as I can.
You can check out photos on instagram at @billiegoatvanhawaii of the build process and where she's been :)

I had always dreamed of converting a van but the van I had in California came to me already done. When I got to Hawaii I knew it was my chance to do a project that I've been dreaming up for a while and Billie came to fruition! I wanted a functional design that included many of the comforts of a home. I am open to having long term renters and working out a deal with that as well!

The van got me everywhere I wanted to go on Hawaii island. It’s tall and gives a great view of the road and oncoming traffic. It really guzzles gas, so planning to minimize your miles is both good for the environment and your pocketbook. Brooke was excellent in communicating before during and after the trip and managing the van handoff through an intermediary. The van itself is very basic. I used it to get places, to charge all my devices, and to sleep. I didn’t find the kitchen to be very useful for my needs, and I didn’t use the refrigerator at all because I couldn’t tell if it was working, and even after I wiped it down it had that funky unused refrigerator smell. For my purposes, where I was lugging a lot of camera equipment to take pictures all over the island, it worked great. The interior of the van was neat, but the surfaces were grimy and would benefit from an inside and out detailing just to wipe all the surfaces clean. I would be happy to work with Brooke again.

The Van has everything you need, a little uncomfortable if you are more than 5'5 ft. Far away from the airport of Kona. Brooke is super nice and she gave us many recommendations and spots to sleep. Was a nice expreriencie!

Q.How do the electric, water and sewage hook up work while setting up at the campground?
A.
There are not any hookups in the van as it is fully self sustained. The water tank is 6 gallons and can be filled at any water fill station either at a store or at one of the roadside springs located on the island. Electric is a house battery that is topped up when driving by a battery charger system. This battery connects to an inverter that powers the fridge and has plugs for chargers.

Q.Are there any special tricks and tips that would help with operating the RV easily?
A.
Since she was originally a passenger van, adjusting to driving is quite easy! You will be higher up on the road than a normal vehicle so seeing everything is actually easier in my opinion. Just be aware of the length on turns and don't take any too sharply or you may hit the side. I recommend a 2 point turn at least, in order to ensure clearing any obstacles when going around tight corners.

Q.Where should I go?
A.
There are so many beautiful places to stay around the island. I would recommend the many pullouts along back roads or exploring so more rural areas to find nice secluded places to park. Just make sure you're not on anyone's land and you'll be good!
