I have not done it for short rides because it's not convenient, but I did it often for 80-120 km day rides.
Put an old blanket on top of the trailer, then use nylon straps to strap the bike on the roof of the trailer. A bike with 20" wheels can be installed fairly easily on the trailer, but attaching it properly is still a 10-15 minute job.
Now that they are older, a installed a hitch on the front end of a Burley Nomad trailer. If we go for long distances, I can take the tandem + trailercycle (that's for the younger child) + trailer. When the taller kid is tired, I simply remove the front wheel and put the child's bike in the trailer; she continues the ride on the tandem.
