Dismantling an Airstream

I bought a '69 Safari last fall, gutted except for the bathroom. It needs spare parts - some rather important - like rear belly panels.

I found another '69 Safari recently and intend to buy & use it for parts, and ideally would like to take my time with the process... but it seems like finding free, long-term parking for two trailers is going to be difficult.

I'm considering keeping the second trailer on a local lot, and with the help of two friends (one of them a professional metal-worker), dismantling it as soon as possible and storing the parts for later use.

My question is, how long might this reasonably take to accomplish? What tools or special skills should I take into consideration? I did do an initial search of the forum, and haven't found any threads on this type of project.
