I bought a 2000 SLK 230 about a month ago and am loving it, I'll probably love it even more when the cruise control works too, which is what brought me to the forum in the first place - btw it's not the tyres.
It's winter here in the Snowy Mountains so the roof isn't likely to come down for another two months, my husband jokes that in roof-down mode we can't go far with the little bitty luggage space that's left over.

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

As far as luggage throw it way. We use canvas duffel style bags that can bend & give some. We have learned to roll our clothing, and forget about hangers or dressy clothes or 10 pairs of shoes, Teva's work well for shoes. Store pillows behind seats. Just a few ideas for space saving...

Welcome from Washington, DC.

I've found the trunk to be larger than expected in actual use. Don raises a good point with duffle style bags that have give; you can fit a lot more.

Just think how glorious your top-down driving will be after waiting through the winter months. Even when cold, one of my favorite things to do is bundle up and take an early morning drive right after a good rain.

Hi Jindy. Welcome to the Forum from the Sunshine State, starting to hit the cooler weather up here, but not as cool as your minus temps and snow predictions. Stay safe on the roads down there and enjoy the drive, I'm sure you'll have plenty of photo shoot opportunities to share with us all. :)

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome to the Forum from the UK. My previous non-MB convertible had a roomy enough boot for a surprising amount of stuff. As others say you will be surprised and soft overnight bags etc are the way forward.
