I've never listed anything on eBay so I'm most likely not a good source. However I've had great luck w/ Craigslist selling 4wheelers, sleds, tractors, etc etc --- no problems at all. In fact I'm getting ready to list my sled in the next week or 2.
Small tools, clothing, electronics sell better on EBay because you reach a larger market. Cars, furniture and apppliances sell better on Craigslist because they are hard to ship. Otherwise, eBay is better because you never need to meet anyone, and the payments are guaranteed. You never here a horror story about getting stuck with a bad check or meeting a serial killer on eBay.
Seems like that may be relatively small market for stuff like that? If so you may do better on ebay even if they take a cut.
I've sold stuff on ebay and CL. When I had a couple whitewater inflatables to sell I put them on ebay knowing the local market would be terrible. I sold them for about $100 less than I purchased them for and had owned and used them for a few years - so that worked out well for me.
Know your shipping costs, even if you plan to pay for part of it yourself (to make your listing more attractive).
