I have a 23 year old van and have found that trial an error is the name of the game. In the end, I found that for the fridge to work and the sink/shower to drain correctly, the level indicator device is best placed on the floor of the gas locker. It will differ with other vans of course.

You have great faith in the stability of wooden boxes on wheels
Very fortunately for other reasons it is not a "wooden box". However, if it were I would dump it if it twisted out of true significantly enough not to be able to use the sides being vertical for levelling purposes. Being in that state it would be unsafe to tow.
Surely if the chassis is level then the floor is too. The waste water drain pipes are fixed to the floor so the floor needs to be level or sloping slightly towards the waste outlet. Any distortion / subsidence of work surfaces are irrelevant. I use a couple of pieces of decking board for levelling side to side on grass pitches. On hard standing I assume the pitch is reasonably level side to side
