New Camper, how to haul?

After a year of shopping around we finally picked up a new camper. 2015 Coachman Clipper 17RD. Does anyone haul 2 quads while towing a camper? How do you do it and what works best? I was thinking about an 8' bed 3/4ton and adding one of those things that lets you park the quads on top of the bed.

get a 3/4 or 1 tone with a flat bed and put the quads side by side across the bed not length ways, it works great for one of my friends plus flatbeds dont dent!

I think your idea is the best one, a two place hauler add on to the top of the truck Bob, you then have storage under it, where as a pure flat bed won't

I pull doubles when camping and riding but I have a fifth wheel camper. You have the right idea but make sure you get long enough ramps to load and unload safety. I would also recommend getting air bags for your suspension.
