The majority of rv bumpers are not engineered to hold the additional weight of a bike rack and bikes. There are however bumper support brackets available where the manufacturer of the bracket indicate that when used as intended, the brackets will increase the carrying capacity of an RV bumper.
As for voiding warranty, I would recommend consulting with the manufacturer.
Regarding the addition of a ladder. Here is a fairly good thread that may help to answer your question.
