I think it would totally depend on the specific trike and specific bike rack! However, with enough bungee cords you can secure "almost" anything.
Notice the upside down trike on the standard issue over spare tire bike rack. The spiders web of rope, bungees, and chains not so visible.
Yes a trike is worth it.
My main issues with a trike comes down to a lack of speed. I'm just not used to riding a bike that slow. Especially considering it was a fixie. . . just makes my mind explode thinking about it. Both years I rode a trike I had a moment with bad playa acting like the black knight before I figured out how to get past it on the trike. Because I can't do what I would do on a bike. Also my first ride on it each year I had that whole counter-inventive thing on how to turn. (You can't lean into a turn, after all. lol) Plus the whole hitting ones knees on the handle bars thing isn't fun.
If you do get a trike, I'd suggest it have a few gears, wide tires above 20" and that the frame be long enough for you.
