I have been on a road trip the last 2 yrs. 54K mi. 47 States and 7 Provinces. Took mostly backroads whenever I could.
The 55 AMG never missed a beat. Had to replace one fog lamp from a rock chip in a construction zone in Canada.
Best camping rig I have ever owned.

^ Excellent!

Were you alone or with a partner? Looks like a great trip. I've been planning something like that around Europe for years. The main problem is the cost of fuel for the 55 compared to flying. For instance, I could fly London/Vienna round-trip for about £120 - fuel and Chunnel would be closer to £1000...

By the way - invest in a Smarttop module. Not only can you raise (or lower) your roof while travelling at up to 33mph, but you can have roof down and all four windows up. Those little rear quarters not only look much better raised, they reduce draughts as well. Also improve security a bit, if like me, you frequently park it with the roof down.
