Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

There was a "Hints for Homebuilders" column a couple of years back for a DIY tow bar made from inexpensive hardware store materials. Maybe do a search on the EAA website.

I may know someone with a spare. I'll get back to you via PM.
Remember that the tow bar is not a part of the aircraft. Thus, it does not need to meet ASTM concenus standards. Therefore, you are not obligated to pay the big bux to the dealer, and no LoA is required.
Nice seeing you on the board, Parker. I didn't make it down to FL this year (I pulled a Douglas Corrigan and am in Boston right now) - but will certainly drop in on you next time I fly South.
