if you want to know what your maximum  permissable axle loading is then I can recommend this tutorial .
If you can weigh your van at a local weighing station, ask them for seperate front and rear axle loads as well as a total weight of your fully loaded van. You can then use your motorhomes Weight Plate which is probably riveted to your passenger step or under the bonnet to see how much additional load you can add to each axle

great up! ...glad it was of interest.
I used it to calculate if I could hang a 450Kg motorcycle and rack on my LWB smiley Transit tow bar and surprisingly there was plenty of spare capacity.
the only thing you have to be aware of is any weight applied to the back axle has the effect of removing some weight on the front axle due to  weight transfer.
