Default Fitting two Williams 2.5G kegs in 60/70qt igloo cooler?

So I've been researching building a portable keg cooler for my 2.5G keg(s). Has anyone done with with the Williams chinese 2.5G kegs? They are only 13" tall so I think two would fit in a 60qt but they are 9" compared to a 3G which seem to be 8.5" wide.

One of several threads that have a good bit of info.

I would prefer the 60qt as it's about 1/2 the price of the 70qt. I'm only using it for one keg for now and will probably fill the remainng room with bottles until I get a second or I'd probalby just go with a 5G drink cooler.

I got the 60 quart and it just fits a 3 gallon italian ball lock without disconnects and thats 16.5" tall , so I would think you'll be ok. It won't fit a 3 gallon with the disconnects so I ended up getting the 70 quart top from igloo for aound $25, so no real difference in price if you get the 60 and decide you want more room later.
