Aussies set to break world RV record

Australian RV enthusiasts are gathering in outback Queensland this month ready to tackle a world record dating back 16 years for the longest line of motorhomes, caravans, campervans and fifth-wheelers.

Barcaldine will host the attempt to topple over the current Guinness World Record, which was set in June 2003 when 672 moving camping vehicles (RVs) were recorded in Canelli, Italy.

The Australian Motorhoming Lions Club (AMLC), which has organised the event with Barcaldine Regional Council, expects Australia’s strong travelling fraternity will show up in large numbers, with 850 RVs already registered to participate in the feat.

“At this stage we are looking at getting at least 200 more than Italy with people coming from everywhere, from all states and territories, and even from New Zealand,” says AMLC president Len Waddington.

“You don’t have to own one of these vehicles to get involved in the event - you can hire it or borrow it and come along and have a lot of fun over the five days.”

Activities kick off on May 23 with the event aiming to boost visitation and expenditure in drought affected towns in and around Barcaldine. All proceeds from the event will also be donated to the local community.
