Forty-three-year-old Yannick Read’s entry is arguably the most British of all the new records in the new Guinness World Records 2015 book.

The website writer and part time inventor from London has built the world’s Smallest Caravan.

The vehicle, which is fully roadworthy, measures 2.39m (7 ft 10.9 in) in length, 1.53 m (5 ft 0.24 in) high and 0.79 m (2 ft 7.9 in) wide.


Named the ‘QTvan’, it’s fully equipped with a full size bed, interior lighting, TV, sink and a kettle. The caravan weighs 131.1 kg (289.03 lb's).

In spite of its size, the caravan is surprisingly comfortable and Yannick has been on mini-breaks around the UK in it.


He says that thing he enjoys most about his creation is “the smiles from people who see me towing it along the road.”

Yannick, who also appears in this years book for creating the loudest bicycle horn - says is now making plans to make more tiny record-breaking creations – “watch this space!”
