Anyone mount a trail-a-bike to an xtracycle?

I've been considering ways to get my wife and daughter to go on some short, rail trail, bike camping trips. I'd like to find a way that I can haul all or at least the majority of our family camping gear on my bike so my wife can just ride along, maybe with a small daypack.

I'm thinking about getting an xtracycle freeradical kit for my hybrid bike. Should have no problem hauling all our gear on that. I would probably even have room for my 8-year-old daughter to ride on the deck, BUT we also have an Adams trail-a-bike and it might be nice to have a stoker with a load like that. My thought is that it should be simple to mount it to one of the rear uprights on the xtracycle, but I wonder 1) Will the mount point be high enough? and 2) Will the fact that it's a little off center be a major detriment to the way the bike handles?
