rear of clipper utilization

Has anyone done any modifications they would like to share to utilize the rear portion of the camper? Specifically the outside rear, where there is just so much unused space. Maybe a ladder, or bike rack or something?

I haven't done anything to the rear exterior wall yet. We were recently talking about installing a bike rack, but installed a rack inside instead (more secure and out of the elements). Other than a possible back-up camera in the future, I think I'm leaving the back alone.

I did not take a picture yet, but what I did was I mounted fort mounts to the underside of the seats, so when I want to haul the bikes, I remove the cushions, lower the table and flip the seats over so I can mount the bikes. I can try to take some picture the next time we haul the bikes.

This is what I used:
