Hawaii

Have noticed in the past many destination stickers that show Hawaii. Would like to give that state a visit. Any suggestions on proceeding on gathering information. Costs, shipping lines, can you go on same ship or use RoRo etc.
Ports of entry/exit suggestions.
Thanx
Ken

Hi Ken,

My question is why?
For the cost of shipping you could rent an RV in Hawaii and have money in your pocket.
If you want to use all of your money, take a Hawaiian Cruise with all the tours you can handle and be treated like a king!

Just my 2 cents and worth every penny.

Steve

Hawaii

After you put in 23 years as a merchant marine, you'd know why. Multiply cost by four and it adds up to go the cheap way. looking to see the state, not idiotic entertainment. Have not found a reasonable rv rental in H, know of any?

I lived in Hawaii for seven years, left in 83. Don't remember ever seeing an RV while there. Maybe things have changed.

Hey Ken,

I get your point but still think it may be impracticle so here's a thread to look at:
Live in an RV in Hawaii?? (Lahaina: RV parks, for sale, rentals) - (HI) - City-Data Forum

This company may have contacts to give you a shipping quote:
Shipping and Moving to Hawaii

Good Luck,


Steve

We have visited a number of the islands. Honestly, Oahu is the only island with roads that are comfortably large enough for an RV and then there are only a few of those. We saw a few smaller Class Cs on the Big Island but I don't think that it would be very enjoyable there to drive around. Maui and Kauai both have pretty tight roads, especially around the main attraction areas.

Rent a limo and leave the driving to others.

I will have to agree with chasfm. We've also been to Oahu, Maui & Kauai (Maui is our favorite). I remember seeing a small class C in Oahu. I saw one class C on Maui, but I think it belonged to locals. I wouldn’t try Maui in anything larger than a small class C. Parking in populated areas will be the biggest problem. Kauai....nothing bigger than a class B IMHO.

I've been a frequent visitor to Hawaii and lived on Maui for 7 months in 2006/07. I don't remember ever seeing an RV in all my time there and I'd agree that Oahu would be the only place with roads to handle a rig of any size. I looked into shipping my SUV over there and decided against it because of cost.

Best of luck.

Rick

Craig, I was homesick for Maui before I ever got on the plane to fly back to the mainland. I was fine slugging out on the beach in Wailea but DW couldn't stand being that far from the two grandbabies so we came back and bought a coach! I guess I just got so used to spending big bucks in Hawaii that I needed something else to pour money into.

We're in Az now and it's 94 today and forecast to be 98 tomorrow so I'm really missing the 82 with light trade winds.

Aloha,

Rick

Love Hawaii. Was there in 07. Don't recall seeing any RV and would never think of having one there. IMO Oahu is the only island that has roads that could handle it, but lots of people there. We covered the entire island in one day via private tour. Maui is my favorite, but definitely not suitable for an RV. Big Island ok but not as interesting as the others.
