Advice on loading two bikes in one trailer...

I plan to load two sportbikes in an enclosed 6x12 trailer but am not sure on the best way to do it. The (Uhaul) trailer has 3 tie-down points along either side. I have a cycle cynch for one of the bikes and will have to rig a tie-down to the bars on the second bike. The options I am aware of are arranging the bikes side by side at the front of the trailer or sitting them at an angle in the front and middle of the trailer. There won't be anything else in the trailer but the bikes...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, particularly if you have done this before! I have to travel 1200 miles and don't want any surprises when I get to my destination.

The Baxley's were previously mentioned to me, but the cost is steep for one weekend of use. Anybody want to rent theirs out?!

The Baxleys will pay for themselves easily over time, just by not blowing fork seals alone, not to mention no bent rotors, scratched body work etc.

At the very least, get another Cycle Cinch to tie down the other bike.
Park them in gear and tie them both front and rear.

I would stagger them slightly and also put them over the wheels so you don't have too much toungue weight.
