    Just met a guy who bought a new Snomaster which looks like an Engel. Much better built than first version. And still much cheaper than Engel or NL.
    But... Do I stay away and not repeat my mistake?

    Dometic CFX range?
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    I got mine (the upgraded shape you are referring to) about 4 or 5 years ago and still going strong... Built quality definitely improved from their first versions...

    Very happy with my Sno Master...

    And remember, NL also have a failure rate...

    Just like cars etc. all brands will have issues, some just more than others.

    It is the back up that counts. My NL had an issue just after purchase. No hassle, straight exchange for new one. 6 years and no issues, same as my Waeco that is brilliant.

    I really like the new double door Dometic.

    I am using the agent that is recommended by Snomaster.

    I have already contacted Snomaster in this regard on more than one occasion.

    Update:

    Just picked up a brand new Snomaster 66L, with compliments from Snomaster SA.

    Would like to thank the guys at Snomaster SA and Outdoor Warehouse for their kind assistance in the matter, specifically Johann and Jonas, respectively.

    Nou moet ek gaan bier koop...

    Snomaster has great service.

    A mate of mine went to their store for new hinges for his 2nd hand Snomaster... walked out with a jacket, new hinges and a new cable.... for gratis. Got 30% discount off a very nice Ice machine too.

    This would not perhaps happen to be the Pierre that worked for years for More Sport Service Centre that tended to Waeco repairs?

    It might be the one I'm thinking about.

    You will not find a better more helpful guy when it comes to service if this is the same guy.

    He left More Sport Service Centre a few years back and joined the Dometic Group. Therefore wondering if he made a move again.
