Smashed Airstream

HELP! My 1963 18' Airstream was smashed by a tree. Got it yarded out of the woods, but I need help/ideas getting rid of it. Some parts may be good and of interest to someone. Other than that, scrap metal? Looking for help/advice from someone who has dealt with similar situation.

Thanks!

wow. Don't junk it. The end caps are the most valuable parts and look like they were spared. Like the comment above, there are lots of people that have considered taking the center out of an airstream and making it a super short trailer.

The door is worth a few hundred, but I don't need it.

I could use Corning windows if it has them. Also good working appliances. Send me a PM
