rack?

Hello!
My husband has a new Santa Cruz Bronson with tubeless tires AND we have a new for us campervan with the spare tire at the rear So ,bike rack issues. We do have a hitch Husband says no to a platform rack becasue it should not rest on its tubeless tires for hundreds of miles But also he does not have the diamond shape with horizontal top tube for hanging racks.Recommendations?
thanks!

There is no problem with putting a tubeless tire on a platform rack for hundreds of miles.

As above, no problem with putting tubeless tires in any sort of a rack for any number of miles... maybe some temporary flat spots will develop after years, but not hours or days.

Otherwise, there are/used to be racks that mounted on the spare tire on the back of SUVs/campers.

top-tube hanging racks are the devil.

I understand one possible problem with tubeless on a platform. If the tire loses all pressure, then the sealant can adhere the flat tire. It's not a serious issue, but happened to me when I left my bike for a few months.
Other than that, I don't see an issue
