Making the Rear Lounge Seats not So Bumpy Ride

I have a 2013 3500 Airstream Interstate that I'd like to modify with the goal of making the rear lounge seat more comfortable and not so bumpy. I've already read through a zillion posts but wanted to get additional feedback from others who have installed modifications to see if it's worth the money. I'm thinking of installing: (1) Koni rear shocks (822588), (2) possibly front Koni struts (872657), (3) Hellwig rear anti-sway bar (7254), (4) Spring Assist Kit (Sprinter-Store), (5) possibly front Sumo Springs (SSF-106-40), and (5) possibly Sumo Springs rear (SSR-335).

My questions are do you feel that: (a) all the above items should be installed at once, (b) if no, which ones do you feel are necessary, (c) did you have to move the generator on a 2012 or 2013 year, (d) did passengers riding in the back notice a difference in ride. I realize that the sway bar if more for reducing sway in wind conditions and not so much for backseat ride. But, does it help there? Is the $650 Spring Assist kit worth it? What would the Sumo Springs add to the overall ride. Cost of installations? Thanks and sorry for such a long post.
