This year’s International Truck, Trailer & Equipment Show in Melbourne saw Drake Trailers unveil a new range of replica model trucks and one very special commemorative replica Kenworth T909 in memory of Rowan Membrey.
Membrey Kenworth T909 “Rowan” truck
The Membrey Kenworth T909 “Rowan” truck model replica is dedicated to the memory of Craig Membrey’s son. Drake Trailers worked with Mr Membrey, of Membrey’s Transport & Crane Hire, to produce the model in honour of his son who suffered from depression and tragically took his own life at age 17.
Mr Membrey was presented with the very first model at the Melbourne Truck Show by Drake Trailers’ Bruce Hay, and was quoted as saying that it brought a tear to his eye. This unique, high-quality model has working suspension, steering and adjustable locking turn table.
Drake Trailers supports beyondblue charity
A donation from each sale will go to beyondblue to continue raising awareness of depression. The CEO of beyondblue was presented with the second replica model and numbers three and four were presented to PACCAR Australia.
Mental health continues to be a significant problem among across the nation and a worthy cause for Drake Trailers and Craig Membrey to get behind 100%.
