I don't know how much you earn in your job, but "between $810 and $950" buys nice vacation. With today's prices you can fly to most of the US in $200 range and inspect the car yourself before sinking. Round trip tickets cost like $40 more, so it is wise to have one.
Have to admit, that being Polish American I always try to stop at Chicago. The beer I can buy in CA for $2.50 is 89 cents there. The same with kielbasa i pierogi.
Did I mention I love vacations on the road?
BTW W210 can hold 16 cases of beer and about 200 lb of kielbasa even if you have a passenger.
Being alone I loaded 43 cases of beer in wagon.
In MB I make Chicago to San Francisco in 2 days regardless huge hangover.
