Draw up a formal plan (allow for slippage because doo-doo occurs). Involve the children even if they are just out of the cookie crumbler stage. They CAN help polish; if you need to patch the floor, their tiny persons can scoot under the Airstream and help daddy and mommy pick up dropped tools, and their shortness will come in handy if you want to apply tire black to the wheels!
The more they feel it is THEIR Airstream too, the more enjoyment you all will get out of it. OH, and start camping the minute you have a sound floor and no mouse droppings - kids just LOVE to make smores around a campfire and use their sleeping bags, even if it's in the driveway or a camping spot three miles from home.
