Yeah they sell those Jumping Jacks at JAX in Lafayette if you ever want to go see one. Cool concept, but worst of both worlds, IMO... the utility trailer is small, and not that beefy. The tent is, well, just a tent. there's a fold-up table inside, then 2 beds. So big clunky utility trailer with your weight way up high, converting to a big airy tent with no popup amenities. And what about the rest of your gear- under the quads is where the tent and poles go, but your action packer of motorcycle gear, tote of pots & pans, stove, grill, sleeping bags, pillow, clothes, shoes.. all need to ride inside the truck, in the half of the back not already consumed by the fridge. not happening!

If I were a two guys going hunting with a quad it would be a different story, perhaps.

Jeff I've thought of a rack for above the camper, but can't see it happening in a way strong enough to support a bike, yet removable enough to get out of the way to let the camper rise. Cool thought though, other than I don't really want the bikes way up high like that for wind drag, side hill, tree branch, and pain to push them up there reasons.
