The Thule OutWay Platform Trunk Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # TH65JV has a clamping system to secure the bikes that is adjustable along that U-shaped tube. The best way to see if your bikes will both fit okay on this rack is to stand them up next to each other and see if there will be enough room for that longer arm to reach through or around your larger mountain bike to reach the frame of your smaller mountain bike.

I went ahead and did a test fit of a standard mountain bike and smaller 20" bike and they fit perfectly on the OutWay (see attached). Just be mindful that you may need to move your bikes back and forth on the trays so that the handlebars and pedals fit properly. It might also help to test fit the bikes with the rack on the ground first like I did so that you know how everything needs to be positioned when the bikes will be up in the air.
