A life size Lego camp trailer was revealed at last fall’s Motorhome & Caravan Show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK, setting a new Guinness World Record for the largest travel trailer ever built out of the interlocking plastic bricks.

And it appears no brick was spared in the model. Wired with electrical lighting, plumbed with running water, and accessorized with a stocked fridge, the Lego model matches the classic T@B 320 RS teardrop down to the color palette.

The model trailer is constructed from 215,158 Legos, smashing the previous record by 20,000 bricks. The model trailer took a 12-person team over 12 weeks and 1,000 hours to complete.

The dining area can be converted to a bed, for what we expect to be a restless night’s sleep. Better bring your own pad.

Lego kitchen

The kitchenette includes a stove, range, coffee pot, and a refrigerator stocked with bricked provisions.

The model was created by UK’s Bright Bricks, a LEGO Certified professional model company, who construct everything from 40-foot Christmas trees to massive models of jets and ships.
