Default Shipping motorhome to Big Island

I'm looking for the cheapest way to ship my motorhome to the Big Island. Any help would be appreciated. Note, it has solar panels and a compost toilet and will be driven only to my country property, so please no nasty comments.

Be sure that where your property is that if you have a HOA will allow it.

But other than that I have looked into Pashahawaii dot com they will be able to take care of you.

If it is to be parked for a long time in one spot, you may want to build a roof for it. Frequently things like shipping containers and trailers spring leaks when they are left out in the rain all the time. It also keeps them cooler, if there is enough roof overhang to shade the sides of the trailer/motorhome.

Are you certain the island is large enough? I have seen some really big motorhomes.

No concerns about HOVE CC&Rs, but are you keeping track of the Vog situation?

my motorhome is really, really big and my prop(like most) is in its own micro-climate(cloud-forest) and the VOG not a problem. I'd appreciate real answers to my Q, not subtle attempts to deter me. GREG,The big island is 4040 sq. mi.,a veritable mini-continent. and thanks jimbo.

It was not legal to have, or register, a motorhome on Oahu until the last year, so I think you will not find many here who have any experience in shipping one to the islands.

I don't know about the Big Island. Each county has its own rules about motor vehicles.

You may want to check with the local government. They might be illegal.

I found a place that rents VW campervans on the Big Island. They might have some answers to your questions. No tel no on the web site, but there is an email address:
