World record Lego caravan replica
Caravanning Queensland and Top Parks are officially the new Guinness World Record title holders for the world’s Largest LEGO® Caravan.
The project, which was commissioned to celebrate the 50th annual Queensland Caravan, Camping & Touring Supershow, was built by a team of up to 20 adult fans of LEGO (AFOLs) from across Queensland and interstate, took 10 weeks to plan, over 20 weeks to build, more than 530-man hours and features 288,630n individual LEGO bricks held together by 70 litres of glue.
The caravan built from LEGO bricks is a life-size replica of an iconic 1973 Viscount Royal, Australia’s largest caravan manufacturer in the 1970s, and sits atop an original and functioning Viscount chassis.
Caravanning Queensland General Manager Jason Plant said they always wanted to do something on a grand scale and building the world’s Largest LEGO caravan was the perfect idea.
The caravan has begun a tour around the country with Top Parks.
Head of Top Parks David Smith said as Australia’s largest network of independent parks, the company had thrown its support behind the project.
The caravan has beaten the previous title holder for the Largest LEGO Caravan by 73,472 bricks.
Avid caravanner and Brick Builder, Ben Craig, said the project wasn’t without its difficulties and definitely pushed the capabilities of LEGO bricks, especially with such a large open space inside.
The caravan is fully equipped with a double bed, wardrobe, sink with running water, stove, refrigerator, dinette, cupboards with sliding drawers and operating tail lights. Check out the video:
