Minimalist method 2.

I have not tried this method and as such I have no pictures.

This method requires some disassembly of the transported bicycle. The fork must be removed from the frame. This means removing the stem, handlebars and seperating the front brake cable.

The steering tube is now empty.

The transporting bike needs a rear rack and an additional seat with seatpost. Firmly secure a seat upsidedown to the rack. The seatpost is vertiaclly

Put the steering tube on the seatpost. Now it really looks like a trail-a-bike.

The trick is to keep the seatpost vertically secure while transporting.
