With 10 weeks of planning, 20 weeks of building, 530 hours and 288,630 Lego bricks, the world’s largest Lego caravan was born.
The project, commissioned by Caravanning Queensland and Top Parks, celebrated the 50th annual Queensland Caravan, Camping and Touring Supershow in 2018 and officially took the Guinness World Records title in September.
The Lego caravan is a life-size replica of the iconic 1973 Royal by Viscount Caravans, Australia’s largest caravan manufacturer in the 70’s, and sits atop a functioning original Viscount chassis.
It’s fully equipped with a double bed, wardrobe, sink with running water, stove, refrigerator,
and dinette, cupboards with sliding drawers and operating taillights.
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 fit the bill.
“It’s fantastic to be part of a project that will connect two great family activities – Lego and holidaying – and shed a new light on caravanning and camping in Queensland,” Mr Plant said.
Avid caravanner and Brick Builder Ben Craig said the project wasn’t without its difficulties and they pushed the capabilities of Lego bricks with the large open space inside.
“Overall, I’m really happy with the result – let’s go camping,” he said.
Caravanning Queensland is yet to confirm if the Lego caravan will be displayed at upcoming events.
