Steve Bawa Burning Man RV Rental Steve Bawa is a complete con artist. He illegally rents RVs to concert goers and Burning Man enthusiasts. Napa California
*REBUTTAL Individual responds: My side of the events
*General Comment: Sorry to hear about your nightmare!
Steve Bawa of Napa, California is a complete con-artist. I recommend you do NOT interact with him on any level. Let me give you an overview of the hell he put me through. I found his ad on Craigslist for RV rental for Burning Man. I was excited when I spoke to him because he was a Burner. In reality, he was a complete nightmare.
Steve has an illegal RV rental program where he doesn't pay taxes to the government. His format is as follows: 1) you pick an RV, 2) you pay him a cash deposit of $1,000 for the RV, 3) he demands you get insurance for his RV, 4) you pick up the RV the week of Burning Man and pay him in full, $5,500 additional cash.
What Steve doesn't tell you is that the air conditioning, generators, and water do not properly function on any of his 1980s and 1990s RVs. He completely lies to you and you don't realize you're screwed until you're in the middle of the playa. [continued below]....
But when I needed him most he was dead wait and horrific to deal with. It's tough to upset burners with our laid back approach, but somehow Steve made our entire week a nightmare. I've never used this site before but felt obligated to the Burning Man community to tell the truth about Steve Bawa. I even performed reference calls on Steve and found out the references were in cahoots with him. Do not rent from Steve Bawa, don't make the same mistakes I did.
