    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 !

    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 ! )
