About Andrew Potts
I moved to Kauai in early 2023 from San Diego after visiting the island for just a few days in 2022. Since then, it has been an amazing home and I'm still not done exploring everything there is to offer. I love sharing my van with first-time visitors and island regulars/residents. Please let me know if you'd like help deciding what to do and places to see!
Memories made on trips with Andrew Potts's RVs
The van was perfect, ran smoothly with no mechanical issues, comfy and easy to drive.
Excellent communication, and recommendations!—
We used camp kumu as our home base, if booking, try to get campsite #2 which is on the beach and but surrounded by a tree on each side
We stayed in #3 (some privacy) and #5 (more open)
Camp dogs present but no issues—
Must dos: Helicopter, Napali Coast (6 hr day with Capt. Andy’s), South Shore

The van worked well for our purpose of wanting to see a lot of the island without being tethered down. It is in good shape and comes with some nice amenities. The bed is most suitable for a solo person or a couple with both parties under 5’8’’.
We were amazed at how the space can be used very efficiently. We were a group of three people but Snowball could easily fit 4 people, including our 4 suitcases and 2 backpacks. Also, I liked the stove + sink area. All kitchen stuff was very well equipped and we could feel the host's consideration of our trip!
Sleeping was good. It has a nice vented system upper and down the floor. very cozy and spacious.
Andrew the host was so easy to reach out to, good communication, and we appreciated his flexibility and recommendations of Google Maps Spot.
Of course, snowball is a delicate old car, and the engine is not the most powerful for going uphill, but it has a unique character and all of us fall in love with Snowball.
Thank you snowball. You are amazing❤️

We definitely had to get used to the van life, but it definitely grew on us. We visited several campsites around Kauai: Kumu, Anini and Salt Pond. Kumu is the only private campground, but it's location is further from the best spots. Its great you can stay at the state beach parks, but you will have to be okay with a more parking lot experience and no private showers (showers are also cold, but to be honest with Hawaii's weather you don't really realize it).
Thanks to the provided gas and the coolbox, we were able to make our own breakfast every morning. The battery of the van seems to last forever, we could comfortably keep everything running during the day or night without worrying about power.
Due to my length as tall dutch guy (6ft3) I opted for the extra sleeping pad in the center aisle. We also made a lot of use of beach umbrella as add-on extra.
