Take multiple photographs of the Westfalia, inside and outside, so that potential buyers can see the state of the vehicle. Clean the van and make any needed minor repairs before taking the photos. Write a description of its current state, honestly mentioning any mechanical problems along with highlighting its best features. Mention the presence of any original parts, which increase the collectible value of the camper. Upload the content to the sales site of your choice.

Autotrader.com charges for private listings, with each increasing price point offering a longer run time on the site and the ability to upload more photos with the listings. EBay.com does not charge for creating listings, but does charge a percentage of sales as a processing fee. It also requires a special Seller account and a verified PayPal account to post. TheSamba.com only requires an account with the site to create listings. Craigslist.org does not require an account, but it does not provide tools for tracking and monitoring the sale.
