For those who haven’t yet had the pleasure, moving day is a life milestone that tests your patience, your wallet and your sanity. Chucking all of your stuff in a truck and transporting it across town is hard enough, but when you don’t have a truck and are staring down the barrel of a 1,000 mile journey, your only choice is to get creative.
Before I start on how I managed to create something that managed to enrage both Mercedes-Benz purists and the close-knit trailer community, I’ll mention that my 2000 S-Class was purchased about two years ago for the miserly sum of $3000, in horrible condition. I have since then fixed its more egregious faults and left the reasonable ones to work themselves out. They didn’t.
