    Consider listing it on eBay, with more photos?

    KK, doesn't Ebay have a charge for listing? And the pictures posted on CL are the only ones I have.

    You get what you pay for on CL. Freaks, weirdos, mucho tire kickers, waiting for people to show who never do........... my experiences (as a seller) have been dreadful all across the board. I mean, if you have the patience and the time it will sell eventually. JMO based on local experiences. Some of my friends have had similar problems.
    As a serious buyer however, the chances of finding deals are much better as a result. I recently scored on an engine because the poor seller was being strung along by another potential buyer. I would step up and do ebay. If it doesn't sell, the cost is minimal.

    Yes, of course ebay charges a fee. Craigslist vs. eBay, you get what you pay for IMHO

    These days, you sure need good photos to sell something. Its all in the presentation, as they say. Why not take some better pics that showcase the van more?

    Advertising properly with good photos and on the right venue could literally mean the difference of thousands of dollars in the final price... or not?

    IF it has to go.Bite the bullet and do an E Bay add......
    I personally have not had much luck selling any thing on Craigslist.
