I bought an Empi tow bar from the local VW shop, cost was $75. Used this as the base for my modified tow bar.
The 10" rise I mentioned is the application I used to mate the lowered Speedster to my Range Rover. As you mentioned, use the riser dimension that best suits your tow vehicle.
I will post a pic of the tow set-up tomorrow and label with dimensions!
