Been driving MB brand for about 25 years and the highest value for me in MB cars is paint job.
When I can deal with mechanical issues, even the best US paint shops can't match what MB puts on their vehicles, so living in sunny climates my priority always is to protect paint job, so when I had no garage - I was raising those tents carports.
It was a pity comparing when my 10 yo MB had nice glossy paint and in black you can really admire, when a guy in the area I was walking kept his 7 yo MB on driveway and poor thing was peeling clear coat.
My friend's story about California home & car owners.
"Keep the $70,000 car on driveway and let sun burn the paint, so you can keep $700 worth of crap in your garage"
My Las Vegas house has RV garage that fits Sprinter. That does make me happy man.
