    There are on occasions right good bargains to be had from South Africa.. Even got the door hinge replacements for the Miller from there at a fraction of the cost motorhome dealers wanted here in the UK
    So far I have always been lucky and what ever I have ordered has arrived in good order and good time..

    However....................................

    On the 30th of October 2013 I sent a package to Pretoria

    Guess what has today been returned 'undelivered' ?

    Why the hell it has taken over two years to come back is a total mystery !

    Back in Sarfend for a while, then back to RSA.
    Ah, the intrigues of the South African Postal Service.

    Well it did get delivered eventually even if it was back to the place it started from.

    Dunno about that.. I was sending several packages a week to various parts of S A at the time.. all the rest got there ok ( as far as I know.. certainly do not remember any customers moaning any way ! )
