I'd start with Andy's suggestion. If he's running at the recommended tyre pressures (70psi or so from memory) the van will feel far too hard. Similarly if he's on Michelin camping tyres they give a hard ride.
On our Frankia, also 5.2 tons, I ran the tyres at 55 psi and fitted continentals. That improved the ride greatly. I did fit new front springs but that was because the front was far too low. The van looked as though it was permanently travelling downhill and needed levelling ramps even on level ground.
Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.
