You want to start saving for the repair bills by renting out your house to someone else and sleeping in your car. That is normal, especially if you have airmatic.

I do long hauling in my Ford truck so I spend nights in it as well. That thing is pretty comfortable. The bench seat is only couple of inches shorter than I am, so for stretching the legs I have to go at angle. Last week in Idaho I slept so well, that was surprised waking up to snow on windshield.
Bad part about MB is that they are not design to lower the seats to flat level. I spend one night in ML and it was disaster.

I think my kid just did this in his 126. I think he drank too much at a friend's house and was smart enough to not drive, and smart enough to not wake me up to tell me to pick him up.

Thanks!

Ive spent many drunken nights in the back of my ML, like a second home. I also had to christen it properly the first night I got it. Nothing wierd here.

Yes I have, when on deadline to drive a couple thou miles.
Better, I was about to move into a car when I fell in love with the RR Corniche.

A car would show appreciation for preventive maintenance by never leaving his owner stranded.

Defensive Driving is never having to say you're sorry: a true love story between man and machine.

Naps

I take naps in mine between clients. The back seat is big and comfortable enough.
