Explore the Big Island of Hawaii on your own terms with one of our go-anywhere four wheel drive trucks, outfitted with Tepui roof top tents and all the camping gear necessary to mount your own expedition into our unique island paradise! We offer a unique alternative to the usual car+hotel package, where you spend as much time driving to the sights, as you do seeing them. With our vehicle and tent package, you pick a starting point and then keep going on your own self-guided tour! With over a dozen public and private campgrounds scattered evenly around the island, you will easily be able to explore every part of this lovely island.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose Volcano Village (Volcano, HI, USA):
Our 10 years of experience renting Volkswagen campers on the Big Island of Hawaii has evolved into this more reliable and adventurous platform. We have enjoyed exploring the stunningly beautiful areas of the island that are a little harder to get to, and know that you will too.

The Unique Benefits at this Recreational Vehicle:
For the same cost of renting a minivan, Jeep, or SUV, you get the flexibility of being able to choose your own path to move around the Big Island, without wasting any time backtracking to the same hotel room every night. Most of our customers will spend a few days camping, then perhaps check into a hotel to get a little pampering, before hitting the road again on another unique adventure. If you're unsure about where to head next, we are available and happy to assist you in planning as you go.
