One of our signature products here at HECAS is LPG caravan spares and parts, helping to make sure that thousands of holidaymakers enjoy a warm, comfortable and pleasant trip in their mobile or fixed caravans and mobile homes. We employ a skilled and dedicated team to keep a close eye on the world of caravanning and they are always doing research to keep themselves fully informed. On one of these research missions, our team came across some interesting entries into the Guinness Book of World Records…
Caravanning is enjoyed by many people, who get to visit some of the most gorgeous scenery and have a fun, exciting and cost-effective holiday. As with everything else in life, there are some people who like to take things to extremes and it is in the pages of the Guinness Book that the most extreme people in the world can be found. Here we share four of our favourite caravan-related records…
Largest Caravan Made From Interlocking Bricks – this was made using LEGO® by a group from NCC Events and took more than 12 weeks to build, using 215,000 of the plastic blocks! The caravan was life-size and dwarfed the previous record-holding model, which was built using a puny 20,000 bricks
Fastest Caravan Tow - travelling inside a moving caravan is against the law but we wouldn’t even want to get in the back of one driven by Jason Sands! Speeding across the Mojave Desert, he towed a caravan at a frightening speed of just under 142mph (229kph) to get into the record books
Fastest Caravan Pull (50m) - strongman Warrick Brant from Australia holds this record, which stands at 13.59 seconds. He performed the feat, using a caravan weighing 735kg, on the Guinness World Records television show
World’s Smallest Caravan - a lot lighter at just 131.1kg, the smallest caravan in the world is 2.39m long, 1.53m high and 0.79m wide yet is fully-equipped with interior lights, roomy bed, sink, kettle and television. Writer and inventor Yannick Read built the diminutive vehicle
