I used to mount them on the toad also but now that we went back to the 5th wheel this is what I use. Even though the bike rack locks the bikes on, I always use a strap to be safe.
I use the pin and clamp on the receiver to trailer but the receiver extension to rack I welded solid.

Looks good. did you reinforce the bumper to the frame or use the clamp on receiver to the bumper?

I don't have a bumper on mine. It's a normal 3,000 lb. hitch welded to the main frame.

I would NEVER use a clamp on hitch on the original bumper to hold anything heavier than a sewer hose, they are very thin metal with very poor welds. Either reinforce the original or better yet have a super duper one fabricated & installed.

Thule

I have a factory 2" receiver on the back of my 5th wheel. I have a Thule bike rack and carry two adult mountain bikes. The straps on the Thule are pretty substantial, but I still reinforce them with a bungie and I also bungie the wheels so the front wheel doesn't turn and the handle bars hit the camper. I use it more often on my SUV and the bikes barely move.

If the camper doesn't come with a receiver on the bumper, I would be careful about clamping anything to it. As someone else stated, they can be very poorly welded.

The ladder also is not a good place for bikes, chairs or anything. The movement and vibration moves the ladder and can effect the attachment points, weaken the ladder and cause leaks.
