U-haul trailer size for 2 bikes?

Anyone have experience? I'm looking at renting a utility trailer from u-haul to put two bikes in. I'm trying to decide between the 5'x 9' with the load ramp that 4' 9" inches wide on the inside (which I'm sure will fit two bikes)

or, the cheaper 5 x 8 utility trailer without the ramp ( I have a load ramp that will work) but it is only just over 4 ' wide. Do you think a space 4 ft wide will fit two sport bikes without worrying about them banging into each other?

Whats the price difference? I'd say more room is better. You need enough room to clear your fairings when strapping down. Don't want straps digging into body work.

Looks like about $51 vs $65 for 2 days. That's with the cheapest insurance they have at 9 bucks a day.

Biggest problem with the enclosed uhauls is no where to tie down to. I took the insurance & proceeded to drill holes in the floor & put some eye bolts in.
