Take it easy and I think you'd be okay. There will be less rigidity with the inner skin removed, so drive gently. The bigger consequences would come if somebody, 1.) wanted this to be their long term design, and 2.) insisted on driving at highway speeds.

Bob is right, there would be less rigidity, but in the end, if you didn't tow it like you stole it, you should be fine.
