Stay on target
Heading out on a camping trip this summer? You probably never thought about building your own camper to do it in, but if you have a couple hundred thousand Lego bricks laying around you might be able to pull it off.
It took 215,518 bricks for a team of certified Lego builders in England to build this amazing teardrop camper. This Guiness World Record build is styled after Knaus Tabbert’s delightfully retro T@B RS 320. It’s set on top of a real trailer frame with road-rated tires, and the brake and signal lights really work… so it’s ready to tow!
Inside, there’s a sink with running water and a dining area with a collapsible table that converts into a bed. Perhaps not the comfiest bed you’ve ever slept on, but laying down for a snooze won’t be nearly as bad as stepping on a stray brick in the dark.
Other camping necessities are included, from a chess set that you can bust out when the skies open up to a delicious (looking) breakfast spread. They opted not to build a camp toilet, but that’s probably a good thing.
How long does it take to assemble a fully-functional camper out of Lego bricks? This one took a team of 12 a total of a thousand hours over a two-month span. So, ah… you’re either going to need a large Lego budget and a lot of friends or a large Lego budget and a whole lot more than two months to complete the build. Unless you can devote 20 or so hours a day to building, that is.
