Use a strap tohold the front wheel to the down tube. Look for a center stand that has two stands together.

Yup, a center stand might well do the trick. https://www.amazon.com/BV-Kickstand-Center-Mount-Bicycle/dp/B00LNLXML4/ref=pd_bxgy_200_3/132-1193804-3663914?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00LNLXML4&pd_rd_r=5e2eea27-108a-45be-9959-1ec3096f9e77&pd_rd_w=0LZGc&pd_rd_wg=gPQwI&pf_rd_p=a2006322-0bc0-4db9-a08e-d168c18ce6f0&pf_rd_r=4B99VF7NMHDDVPECYSSZ&psc=1&refRID=4B99VF7NMHDDVPECYSSZ

Though I would find one that isn't adjustable length. That sort of stuff compromises strength, and in my experience, doesn't generally hold up to the needs of touring.

No picture. I think you need 10 posts. There is a way to solve it, but you're correct that a picture would be very helpful.

Can you turn the bike over and get a picture of that from the bottom, and not quite so close? I'm curious what kind of guide you have under the bottom bracket, and how much space you're working with.
