Tricycle mounting

My spouse is not too steady on two wheels, so we have invested in a tricycle.
The tricycle rear track is approximately 67 cm. Even though I have an extending base frame on my Fiamma Pro C rack, it won't stretch to do the job.
Are there any adaptations to the original Pro C rack available (I also have to put my bike on it)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could it not be carried vertically. I.E. front wheel up with the two rear wheels resting on the wheel channels?

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

Remove the two rear wheels of the trike and store them later on the rack or inside.

I suppose this could be made possible, but not being a particularly young man this may be outwith my capabilities, Thanks for the reply though.
Maybe I could fashion an extension myself with 30 mm aluminium tubing?
