How to attach a "Pacific Voyager II" bike trailer? (Pictures!)

I acquired this off Freecycle and would really love to ride around with my toddler, but every way I try to attach the trailer to my bike it doesn't seem secure. Here's what looks right...

(Click to make big)


But when moving forward it can pull back (to the right, in the picture) and then it looks like this...

From the left side


Straight back


From the right


(Yes, I'm aware my bike needs some love; it's been in storage for a number of years.)

Anyway, here's the part that the black curved attach-y thing goes with that is attached to the trailer itself


Any input? Have any of you had this trailer? It has a sticker that says "Toys'R'Us Exclusive", and I imagine it's around at least 5 years old. Any help is appreciated!

I think it might work better if you bolt the white bracket directly to the rear axle.

Personally, I would ditch that hitch all together and get the Burly hitch and round tube connector.
