Travel to Hawaii by RV!

How do we get there?

We’ve purchased 50 brand new barges that you can drive your RV right onto and use your RV’s engine power to drive yourself to Hawaii. At a blistering top speed of 10 mph, we can make the 2400 mile crossing to Hawaii in just 10 days! Travel in the comfort of your own home with your friends by your side and nothing but open ocean for as far as the eye can see.

  • We actually considered buying one of the Rollerboat barges to tow our bus behind us when we moved into a boat two years ago. I shared my research on these – they are actually a real thing:

    BTW – a company used to do Mississippi River tours by barge for RVers too!

    Herman and Helen’s in the California Delta used to offer this barge service. For real. We used to dream about doing that when we had a 24 foot fifth wheel.

    The trip from Hawaii to LA with a westerly wind could be called the Pineapple Express. 🌬🍍😜

    Love it. I used to drive my Vw bug onto a plane in England and drive it off again in Switzerland. I sometimes wonder how much “progress ” we are losing.

    When it was still allowed, we boarded (drove our RV) onto a barge with 2 other Escapee couples, in Alabama. Went through locks, up the Tombigbee, into the Ohio and then down the Mississippi! Cannot remember the entire routes, sometimes we tied up along the river, sometimes in a city. What a marvelous adventure. Shortly after, the Coast Guard shut down the company, saying it was not safe as a passenger line. We ended up in New Orleans for a few more days of fun and partying. Anyone else remember this trip??

  • Ha Ha. I imagined everyone in the desert partying with a bunch of blow up palm trees and pools. Pineapples and drinks on the side.
