The Honda Element. It can climb to the top of Haleakala, or cruise the narrow coastline roads with ease. It sports a large cab with comfortable air conditioning, and it’s a great alternative to standard rental car. Best of all: it comes fully equipped with all the camping gear you might need! While the Element is not converted into a camper (yet!), you can choose to either set-up the large dome tent, or put up the seats and sleep in the back of the car. Renting the Element allows you to camp at the Hosmer’s Grove campsite in the Haleakala National Park, which is inaccessible to the VW campers. Included equipment:
– 4-person tent
– 2 camping mats
– portable camping stove
– pots, pans, utensils, plates, silverware
– flash light & lantern
– 2 sleeping bags
– 2 pillows
– 2 towels
– 1 cooler

Unfortunately, it is illegal to camp anywhere on Maui that is not a designated campground or private property (with landowner’s permission). But there are plenty of gorgeous, safe, and conveniently located campgrounds around Maui!
Yes we do. We offer airport transfers from one of our authorized transportation partners. The cost is $39 per transfer, for up to 2 people ($19 for each additional person), each way. Transportation fees will be billed at time of vehicle pickup. To arrange a transfer, fill out the information on this form at least 24 hours prior to arrival.
The Westies come with two full-size bunk beds, a pop-up tent, a kitchenette with a sink and two burners, a 10-gallon tank of water, plenty of storage space, a cooler, bedding, cooking utensils and silverware, a coffee press, and much more. You can find the list of all that is included in the campervan here.
Absolutely! Actually, this is the most popular trip people take in our campers. There are three campsites on the way, so you can take your sweet time. Note that the camper-vans—just like all other rental vehicles on island—are not covered by insurance or roadside assistance on the 7 mile of unpaved section of the road between Kipahulu and Kaupo. This is due to the road’s bad conditions, and it being a very narrow one-lane road in some areas. Please use wisdom when traveling this road.
Your insurance must provide full coverage (liability, collision, comprehensive), as well as RV rental. EACH driver must provide proof of their own insurance (copy of your policy) upon vehicle pick-up. This option is only available to US and Canadian citizens.
Pull over in a safe spot, and give us a call as soon as possible. We have 24/7 roadside assistance and will troubleshoot, repair, or replace your van as soon as possible. Please note that depending on where you are located, it might take us a few hours to reach you. Decline any offer from any friendly officer or by-stander to tow your vehicle, as towing must be arranged by us to be covered by the insurance. Note that if you find yourself in one of the travel restricted areas, you are liable for all damages to vehicle, tires, towing charges and other expenses resulting from a breakdown associated with operating in unauthorized areas.
