Strip the inside. Remove the outer skin and insulation. Add a lit match. There shouldn't be enough heat from what little wood is in the framing to warp the steel frame.

I don't have a big enough clearing to do the last part....

Invite all the local teenagers.
Tell then you have a case of beer that says they cannot have this thing on the ground in pieces inside an hour.

Once I get everything out of it that is salvageable, it will come down in about that time with me doing it.

I like the free add best, and that was funny.

Next best, the bury it with an excavator.

If not, just go at it with a sawsall and a sledge hammer. A video setup on a tripod would be good incase there is a disastrous surprise of some sort.

I tore a 12 truck camper apart, I just crushed it with my Bobcat skidsteer and pushed it into a dumpster.
