need bike rack ideas

Hi, I'm new here this is my first post! I just bought a short bus to convert into a cool family camper. We lucked out buying a bus sight unseen that is in really stellar condition and we're ready to start our project. We've got lots of ideas but something I can't quite figure out is how we will store our bikes. I'm hoping to avoid anything on the roof. I like the RV ladder mounted rack but don't want to buy and install a ladder for no reason. Can this type of rack possibly be bolted straight onto the back of the bus (if so what kind of hardware do I need)? Any other ideas you would recommend?
Thanks for any suggestions!

What about a trailer hitch, you could use it for a trailer or bike rack or any other attachments.

Honestly, its just a case of drilling holes and riveting the rack on.
