To mark the official celebrations of 130 years of leisure caravanning this year, organisers at the helm of the Motorhome & Caravan Show 2015 will be hoping to set an exciting new Guinness World Record in the form of the largest ever touring caravan to be constructed completely of LEGO bricks. In an effort that is certainly no mean feat, and requiring in excess of 150,000 LEGO bricks, the life-size model, which will be based on a modern, teardrop caravan is set to be completed and officially unveiled to all tomorrow (Tuesday October 13th), on opening day of the Motorhome & Caravan Show 2015 at the NEC in Birmingham. The team behind the construction won’t stop at just making the outer shell, they will also include a full interior, as well as installing working electric lights, sink, simulated cooking facilities, bed and seating which will enable people to get inside! There an 8-person strong team of professional LEGO brick builders who will use every minute of the 1,000 man hours it will take to build the model, which will be based on a modern, T@B 320 RS ‘teardrop’ caravan (different to the main image). When unveiled at the Motorhome & Caravan Show the LEGO brick model will sit side-by-side with a real T@B 320 RS caravan as part of a feature area in Hall 12. James Bissett, Marketing Campaign Director for NCC Events, organisers of the Motorhome & Caravan Show, said: “We wanted to create something unique and truly exciting to celebrate 130 years of leisure caravanning and I can’t wait to unveil our, hopefully, Guinness World Record breaking, LEGO brick caravan at the Motorhome & Caravan Show 2015”. You can keep up to date with the progress of the building on social media, using the hashtag #legocaravan.
