Ewwww!!! I hope not. It would be difficult to get sufficient rigidity with that sort of single hole mount compared to the method I used.

I've used single-hole mount brackets for mounting HF autotune antennas on a towbar tongue, and the rigidity leaves quite a bit to be desired. Ideally you would hollow grind the mating faces of the bracket and the tongue so the actual contact area is maximum when the bolt is pulled down tight.

But there's certainly a lot of scope to hang things back there.
