I have been having the same thoughts. I am going skiing with the SLK this winter and need to take my skis.
I have got a pair of magnetic ski pods which normally attach to the roof, but on the SLK the roof is too small to get the required distance between the bindings of the skis.
I have fitted it across the boot lid and fit the skis across the car. Fortunately both mine and the wifes skis are fairly short and do not extend any further than the wing mirrors.
I have driven the car at 100kph with this set up with no problems but have still to test it at autoroute speeds.
I will update when I have done a full test.
Not an ideal solution but the best I could manage.
