Largest LEGO caravan in the world to be unveiled at Motorhome & Caravan Show tomorrow!

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. A classic 1960s travel trailer by Shasta, similar to the LEGO caravan being made at this year’s Motorhome & Caravan Show.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.
