Wondering if anyone on this site lives in Hawaii and owns a conversion there?

Would like to see some pictures with beach and surfers in background.

Typical Hawaiian winter day looks like this

I lived on Maui, Hawaii for a little over ten years and visited all the islands and never saw a conversion there.
In fact you don't see any large OTR HDTs at all... because they aren't needed there. At the most you see MDT day cabs.

There aren't any motorhomes for that matter... you can't drive them on the beach and there isn't anywhere to park them once you get there.

Beaches are only a few miles from anywhere you live in Hawaii, you don't need a conversion or RV to go there.

This terribly unimportant message brought to you by the Hawaiian Bureau of Tourism and Snobbery.... Now back to our regular programming....

Well... thanks for the big welcome to TruckConversion.net Gary... are you the welcoming committee?

BravestDog asked a question about conversions in Hawaii and having lived there for 10 years I know there aren't any... and I never saw a motor home there either.

So why would you think that's snobbery and unimportant?

I live here in the lower 48 now and been lurking since Warpath built his first conversion in 2003. I was interested in designing something to be built by Showhauler in the next year...

Sorry I disturbed you and your regular programming.
