Sam's Dream in Legos: RVing

Sam and I have a DREAM to explore the U.S. in an RV. We can't think a better way to REALLY see and EXPERIENCE our country than hopping in a camper and cruising. The open road, the natural world and a simple life call us!

We even decided on the RV we'd want (if the MONEY TREE ever starts growing :wink:).


All this dreaming inspired Sam to create a camper out of Legos. His spatial skills and attention to detail are amazing!


Since our DREAM RV has a slide-out, well, his Lego camper had to have one too. His original design had 1. I mentioned that 2 would give the camper more room, but I didn't think it would be possible to build a Lego RV with 2. Sam pondered for a bit, disappeared, and came back, having rebuilt the body with 2 MOVEABLE slide-outs.

"Mom, see! I can build it with 2 slide-outs!"


But the details didn't stop there! He created "chassis" storage, a driver's "cockpit", a propane tank area, and a "tow package" since we'd need to pull a small car while we travel to visit all those cool spots near the campgrounds.


And even inside the camper there was a steering wheel, sofa and bed!


Sam decided those that it would be REALLY awesome for his Lego RV to pull a TRAVEL TRAILER CAMPER too. You never know when family and friends want to come along too, right?


All this building and creativity has a downside though...


Perhaps his next building inspiration should be a BULLDOZER. :wink:

    1. He's also in the process of building a milk jug IGLOO. He has over 300 gallon milk jugs scattered around his bedroom. He's a builder! Always projects-in-process! It's a good thing I'm lenient about how they keep their bedrooms! :wink:

  7. It's true. Creativity does have a downside. My husband might have mentioned that a time or two:-)

  11. Cool RV! complete with slide-outs and everything. I'm showing this to my boys and their lego club members.
    I've had the same dream, touring the US in an RV. Hubby's not so sure, though. The Lord knows what our future holds.
