trek, I also have a sprinter based van and agree totally with you ref the stability when driven on the road, but I'd describe the ride at slow speed over uneven ground to be a bit worse than you suggest.
The reason I asked ref the vehicle base was because a friend of mine has an older (than mine) Autotrail sprinter which exhibits the same behaviour as the OP, his would almost make you sea sick when moving about inside when stationary.
I keep telling him to renew the rear dampers but the suggestion falls on deaf ears as he tells me he's got used to it.
That sounds right to me. We bought a Mohican with what sounds like a similar problem. New rear shocks cured it. Easily done and not expensive.
Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.
