Do you have a hitch on the back of the camper? One that is bolted or welded to the frame? That's the best option. I have a Swagman Trailhead RV4 and it works great. Swagman makes other models as well.

Mounting a bike rack to the rear bumper is not a good idea from what I've read on here.

First you need to figure where you can mount a rack. The rear bumper is not strong enough, only rated for 100# and you probably have a spare on it now, and its also not recommended for a rack. Best way is adding a receiver hitch that is welded to the frame, then finding a bike rack that is RV rated. You can also look at aframe mounted racks that go up front

You can mount it to the bumper of a Whitehawk as long as you reinforce it with Mount-n-Lock Safety Struts.

They're only $75.

I just bought a pair and installed them on my Whitehawk. I now have 3 bikes mounted on the bumper.

Here's my thread on the install:
