We have a trail-a-bike and a chariot. The trail-a-bike is great for all the reasons Ryan notes, but it's no substitute for a chariot. Ours is ten years old now (I don't recall paying more than a few hundred dollars), has been through 3 kids and two dogs, and I have no plans to get rid of it any time soon. Our youngest has more or less outgrown it, but it comes in awfully handy for soccer balls and water bottles, dogs, paint, groceries, gardening tools for community gardening, you name it. Sometimes I even take it downtown empty. It keeps me stable enough to do a standing stop at stop signs, and cars and trucks give me a wider berth. They'll have to pry it from my cold, dead, frumpy mom-bike.
