+1 on four straps. I know people do it with less, but if your one strap (or one of the two) come loose and it starts moving around, things get damaged really fast. Ratchet straps and a few minutes of your time are cheaper than repairs.

If you use four straps, and one breaks or loosens up, it's usually not the end of the world.
