I thought I should post an update for posterity.

I rented the Featherlite 3110 trailer which had a manual winch on it. The car was loaded front-first. I used two 1"x10"x5ft (thickness x width x length) positioned underneath the aluminum ramps (e.g. the boards were placed on the ground and I put the ramps on top of the boards) to ensure that there was no contact with the front bodywork. This was possible on all-stock size non-LSS wheels with non-LSS suspension. I removed the rear diffuser to ensure rear clearance.

Drives a Prius (clearly knows nothing about cars).
