Well! That was easy! I did what I said, and listed it for sale on Craigslist Thursday. Had a tentative deal worked out by Friday night, and finalized the sale of my van this morning. At that point, it made sense to go with the best offer, which happened to also be the dealer who had it in stock. I emailed him last night making sure it was still in stock, all the numbers we had were still in agreement, and told him I had a deal for my van that if it went through, I would call him to come get the car. It went exactly like that. I called him at 10, was there at 12, and on my way home with the new car by 1. It took less than ten minutes from the time we walked in for them to finish getting the paperwork together, fifteen minutes in the finance office signing stuff, and a half hour of him showing us the bells and whistles on the car. All numbers matched up to what had been in the emails, only one brief mention of the extended warranty which I quickly declined, and no attempts to add on special interior protection, paint protection, or anything like that.
All in all, a very satisfactory experience.

Oh yeah, the best part? I got $5k for my van!
Good job.
