This may sound strange, but I recommend a set of metric ratcheting swivel wrenches. Husky makes a nice set that lock, or harbor freight had some really cheap ones that work well.

The wrenches will help get to those hard to reach areas quickly

This isn't 6.0 specific, but for any vehicle I recommend a digital voltmeter (they're really cheap now) or test light; hookup wire (18 or 14 ga "secondary" and 12 or 10 ga "primary" wire from an auto parts store is good); crimp connectors (butt, male and female spade, and ring) for both wire sizes; wire crimpers, strippers, and cutters (there are tools that will do all three.); and black electrical tape.
These tools don't take up much space and will allow you to troubleshoot and at least temporarily repair a lot of electrical problems, both in the chassis electrics and in the camping equipment. I've made a lot more electrical repairs on the road than I have mechanical repairs.

Oh, and spare fuses. You may already have a couple in the fuse box, but if your van has been around a while someone may have already used them.

Also, I firmly believe that every vehicle, whether it's a camper or a passenger car, should have a good flashlight.
