Ian Mailman is from Taranaki farming folk. After school and apprenticeship, he moved to Aussie seeking freedom and adventure. Got a old furniture truck (1956 Austin) decked it out and with his lovely girlfriend set off around Australia on working holiday. Spent 20 years trying out different lifestyles and having fun in the sun before returning home to family and kiwi mates. Knowing housetrucking is the thing that most suits has love of freedom, independence and changing scenery, he bought his truck off Josh and Lisa Steiner now 15 years ago. Being part of the Extravaganza is a awesome way to enjoy traveling our beautiful country, have adventures , be self employed and live on the fringe of society. Looking forward to the fun season ahead.
