I have a Trek T900, which has a low stoker stem. With crank shorteners, my DS was riding it at age 5, with the seat high enough to attach a TAB behind. DD was just enough shorter that she couldn't keep her feet on the peddles without blocks to help her reach. However, without the TAB, with the seat all the way down, she could reach fine.
For the time being, have you considered a tandem for you and the 6-yo, and the conventional trailer for younger DD? That would give the 6-yo time to grow, hopefully enough for the TAB hitch to fit on her stem.
