That trunk isn't that small!

This is what I managed to get into the back of the SLK on a Costco run. That's 4 sacks of 30 pounds of salt, 1x 20 pounds of rice, 1x 20 pounds of flour and some assorted items.



I still managed to have the top down. With the back weighed down, and having the top down for a lower center of gravity, and having the transmission in S mode, this thing really zips around corners!

I neglected to take a photo of how I had it all packed in the trunk.

How full have you managed to load up the SLK?

I'm the master of packing SLK boot up to the seals and using every possible space available. I used it for hauling my stuff between London and Munich on a few occassions for long stays of a few weeks.

You can pack small things in the spare wheel area and under boot cover, some in the small space between roof cover and car body, etc.

Attached is the picture from my last trip between Munich and London, last week.

UK Border Control share this idea with your son. They searched my boot once and when I asked what they are looking for so I can help them, I was told they are looking for a person. So according to them you can smuggle a person in SLK boot ... I will always hate them for interrupting my late night snack and dragging me out of car for such ridiculous search.
