Everyone remembers their first set of wheels, whether car, truck, campervan or trailer. Owning your first one is an unforgettable experience, loaded with micro-lessons that you’ll reflect on for the rest of your life. Or maybe not. For some, your first is a death-trap and for others – well, you take the time to save for the right model that will go the distance.
We’d go as far to say that every one of our customers remembers their first Drake Trailer, which is what we’re hoping for Vic Low Loaders who took a delivery of their very first Drake Trailer – a customised 3X4 Deck Widener.
Vic Low Loaders Deck Widener is fully loaded
Vic Low Loaders are specialists in the heavy haulage and equipment transportation market, based in Nyora (east of Melbourne). For their first Drake Trailer, they wanted a reliable workhorse with all the features that would allow them to transport a higher payload with maximum safety. Their brand-new trailer features bi-fold ramps, an under-deck tire carrier, BPW 19.5 inch axles, customised light layout and a dolly neck which increases their payload capability.
The ever-increasing popularity of Drake Trailers Deck Wideners goes to show that our customer value high-quality materials, excellence in design and engineering, and a great resale value once the jobs are done and the dust has settled.
