Things to Know Before Renting a Campervan in Hawaii

Camping can be the best way to escape from the ordinary. Our everyday city life in our homes can bring us boredom instead of comfort and relaxation. Coupled with work-related stress and relationship difficulties, who does not want to leave the city and go somewhere else that can soothe his weary mind, body, and soul.

An adventure with nature in Hawaii, where sun-kissed beaches, pristine forests, and endless fields formed by raging lava years ago, should come in your bucket list. Indeed, to be with nature once in a while can revitalize our innermost selves.

Here are some things that you should consider when renting a campervan or a motorhome.

A Campervan or an RV

When you are with a larger group, a campervan may not be suitable for you. Campervans are typically smaller than RVs or motorhomes. The larger RVs are equipped with more necessities such as a kitchen, bathroom, living room, as well as a wider bedroom. It is can truly be called a small home away from home.

With their smaller sizes, you can expect that you have lesser space for everything. This means that you cannot be accommodated when you are in a larger group, or you have to hire another unit. However, when you hire a campervan, you can be given a larger camping area. The ease of cruising through all the dirt roads to your destination may also be better through a campervan than when driving an RV.


Staying in a hotel and renting a car or hiring a taxi to bring you to scenic spots may prove to be a more expensive decision than when renting a campervan or an RV. An RV, with its larger size and complete basic amenities of a home, commands a much more price than campervans. With campervans, you can be given additional camping areas in designated camping areas with a minimal fee. It will be of help if you look around for the campervan company that rents out their units for a lesser price.

Well-Maintained Units

Before you hire a campervan from a rental company, be sure that you choose a unit in a brand new condition or one that is well-maintained. An auto breakdown in the middle of the forest or an isolated area can honestly destroy your getaway.

One important thing also to look for is whether the company is complete with requirements such as permit, license, and insurance. A company with all of these may be more reputable than others without the necessary papers.…
