Thank you for the blown up image. It does look like straps are connected to tow hooks. I can now see the bar extended to the hitch.

Transom carrier would need front mount hitch.

Think it was like this one on back of a Suburban. My dad and I used one like this many years ago when towing our travel trailer. The ford Truck is like in OP photo and Im guessing has straps or bars added to tow hook mounts for bracing. See eide boat loader | We Put Fun Back In Fishing

That one of the Suburban looks a lot like ours did. The only problem was loading and unloading the boat constantly.... When my Dad upgraded to a 14 foot aluminum fishing boat, with an outboard engine, he broke down and bought a trailer.
