I bought a vanagon that came with a hitch installed.

I'm about to weld a receiver tube to this unless someone has a suggestion on how to get this working so I can slap my bike rack on this baby...

That is a fairly common vanagon hitch. If you do want to weld a box on be wary of deflection since the box tubing to the bumper mounts is pretty small.
If you have the funds and want to just be done with it look at the offerings from GoWesty http://www.gowesty.com/product-details.php?v=&id=2582
or

Good luck
