I don't know if I want to even try the Ebay or Craig's List approach.
We sold three RVs through Craigslist without a problem. Two sold within days. The oldest, a van conversion type, took a little longer. And it doesn't cost anything to advertise there. You can add all the pics you want if you know how. Four is standard if you're not linking them from another site such as Photobucket.
We listed on CL, EBay, local paper, and RVT. Got a lot of hits from CL and local paper. Zero from RVT, but I new it would be a little tough as it didn't have a slide. Finally the ebay free classified listing sold it for us.
Also list on CL for surrounding area and post if you are willing to deliver and how much distance.
I saved a lot of money by not buying local. Guy had his unit on Cl for some time in Idaho. I made contact and left him my info. Two months of no hits he called me back. Had a private dealer inspect in Idaho and he met me in Vegas. Unit was as described. Found one issue afterwards for $900 dollars, but still a $6k difference from what local units were being sold for used.
I'd try Craigs List first, but understand that what folks are saying is very true - MOST folks looking on Craigs List, are only looking for steals. If it sells quickly on CL, you probably priced it too low.
That, and if you set your CL ad to allow emails, be prepared to get absolutely bombarded with scammer emails. Doesnt matter how many notes you put on there telling scammers to stay away, if you have email turned on for the ad, they're gonna bombard you. It got so bad with mine, I took the email off of it, and just listed a phone number. Poof, no more scammers.
Anyway, I've had great luck buying and selling small stuff on CL, but not bigger items.
If/when Craigslist gets you nothing but scammers and folks wanting to 'steal' your RV for a few weeks, as already said, then its time to pony up some $$ and put it on RVTrader, RVsearch, or RVT. Our trailer is on RVTrader, our truck is on AutoTrader. Have had quite a bit of interest, but no buyers yet. A lot of it, I think, is the time of year. Not many people are buying RVs this time of year, unless they are priced really low (something I'm not going to do).
Anyway, good luck with it.

I use Craigslist all the time to buy & sell both large & small things. It's free, just post your four pictures & add a link to a picture site where you can have 10-20 more pics. Price it at just a hundred or two more than what you know you want to let it go for, and add FIRM to the price. 95% of people wont buy at asking price, if you give 50-100 on price (in person), then they are more willing to buy. It's easy enough to tell the scammers. It's usually the fake sellers who are the problem scammers. I also space out my phone number so it's not easily noticed as a phone number for phishers. I used to get scam calls before I did that, had nothing to do with what I was selling, they call you and try to get you to pay for a third party call & ID theft artists started calling telling me that they were from card member services and to press a number.
Also, if you know someone who lives on a very busy street or highway, ask if you could park it there with for sale signs. I sold my old trailer in four days on a very busy highway street, I even sold an 8x8 wood shed in a week in that same spot, three weeks ago, my wife was shocked that it sold this time of year and for top dollar.
Craig's List is fine for this type of transaction. Just require a certified check. You'll have to do paperwork in front of a notary anyway, so you'll be fine. I've also had good luck selling things in a local classified paper called the Quick Quarter. It's popular here in south Louisiana.
