Minimum 5 foot wide by 8 feet long.

If you are thinking U-haul be careful most of their trailers have narrow loading ramps. Or book the specific motorcycle trailer. It is slightly more $ and more difficult to get on short notification.

6 x 10 is the most frequently mentioned size for a Ural trailer.

I have a 5.5’ x 10’ trailer. It has 2’ high sides and there’s enough clearance that I can drive my rig on and off without worry . 8’ would be long enough, but I use the trailer for misc camping gear and other stuff, as well as for other non-Ural related uses.

5’ width would only work if the trailer had no sides, as the clearance for the cylinder heads becomes an issue.
YMMV
