Can I put my bike in a uhaul??

Has anybody tried actually putting their bike in a uhaul truck? The reason I am asking is because I am moving to Arizona for the summer and I AM NOT LEAVING MY BIKE HERE. I know uhaul has motorcycle trailers but I am trying to keep my expenses as cheap as possible b/c Im going to need the uhaul truck anyway and I know Ill have plenty of room for the bike. I was thinking about strapping it in there pretty good along with some other stuff that I need. The uhauls already come with ramps that are pretty solid. Give me some feedback b/c any and everything would help!!

I put my GSXR in the back of a uhaul no problem. If youre only putting one bike in, you shouldnt have to worry about any extra tie-down points. The rails along the sides will work fine. Just run a strap from each side of the bike to the rail on the respective side.
The ramp is rideable. Rode mine straight in, no problem. But the potential is definitely there. So be careful.
