We put our bikes inside the camper

We also considered an external bike rack, but found the bikes can be easily loaded (with a little patience) into our x17z. We have never scratched or otherwise damaged our interior while moving the bikes (2) in or out. Once inside, we cover them with an old blanket and throw another blanket between them. I don't feel there is any more effort involved than using an external rack. Obviously, they should also be braced against movement.

Have you checked your payload and/or axle ratings?

Long time checking in here... I think I may just put the bikes on the roof of the car. I can't imagine that it will make much difference in fuel economy since they'll still be below the roofline of the trailer, and on the plus side we'll be able to carry them when we aren't trailering.
