I have a 2006 FIAT DUCATO 2.8 van

It is about 2" lower on one side than the other other side at the back. It has just passed it's 1st MOT so it's not a broken spring.
Anyone else had this problem?

The Motorhme is an IH, Model Tio R, built in Knottingly, Yorkshire.

Despite this leaning problem I am very pleased with the van.

i dont think it will be a weak shock absorber......they dont carry any weight, they only absorb any osolation in the springs/suspension.
probably, as already mentioned, is a weak spring or an uneven load.

Make sure you are on level ground it can be deceiving as the height of the van is bigger than the width any slight camber in the road will exagerate the lean.

eg. if the van is say 80" wide and 100" high and parked on a camber of 2" from level the top of the van would be leaning 3" off plum.

Probably a weight distribution.
