Long Term Storage Questions

I've picked up an old merc that I'm going to be driving for the next few years. I might get the M out a couple times a year but it'll be parked the majority of the time. I've looked around online and the consensus seems to be
  • Fill the tank
  • Wash the car
  • No parking brake
  • Trickle charger
  • Car cover

I have all that covered but wanted to see if there might be some other suggestions. I vaguely remember hearing that if you park the tires on pieces of carpet, it can help prevent dry rot. Is there any truth to this? Any other ideas?
