side mount kayak racks

I have seen a few rigs that have boats on the side of a topper, and one without a full rack.
Anyone here have a set up like that?
I am looking for something to mount to the side of a four wheel pop up camper, so a full cab over rack will not work.
I have the room for 2 boats on each side.
What's out there?

What about a bumper rack that carries the boats vertically on either side of the back door?

Be carful with side loaders, that you stay up out of your mirror's view.

I've seen yak or Thule bars right on the side of popups, with ski racks on them, loaded with paddles.

I may do vertical bumper mounted when I get a custom bumper on a new truck. So until then I want to put it on the sides, besides my creeker is to tall for vertical. I made some wood racks that work but I think they will fail on 4X4 roads. And the mirror view is still ok, but I could add extenda-mirrors.
The hitch I have is used for a Thule bike rack. And the area beside the door I want to use for gas can/water storage...that can also hook into the rack via 2" receiver.
