Will and MV F4 fit in a full size pickup truck crew cab?

My company is covering an relocation rental car for a trip to Phoenix, AZ. I can get a full sized pick up truck from Enterprise to bring my MV to Phoenix. But, it's a crew cab and I'm not sure if the MV will fit. Actually, it will but I don't think I'll be able to get the gate up. I'm not sure if that causes any problems (both legally and transportation-wise). Any thoughts.

Enterprise's large pickups are a "Chevy Silverado, Ram 1500 Crew Cab, or similar." MV's length is 82.6 inches; The Silverado (and I'm assuming a standard bed) is 78.7 in.

Ram 1500 Pickup

Plenty of room, just leave the tailgate down.

Friend of mine has a dual cab ford 150 which he carries his zx14 with the tail gate down. Based upon his bike you should not have an issue.

Thank you. So, I suppose the highway patrol won't have any issues.

Follow up question. You know those minivans with the stow and go seating. Do you think the MV would fit in there? I noticed they had cargo hooks on the floor when I rented one for a trip to Phoenix.

I HATE minivans....

So, I have no experience with them.
