Anyone install L Track in ceiling of a wagon?

Now that I'm done with my platform bed I'm looking to use some of the space above my head. I have a 15 passenger medium roof wagon that will be a part time people mover and part time camper for the family. I cannot do anything permanent but am looking for a way to carry fly rods and/or camping mats (air mattresses - 20" wide by 6ft long). I am unable to use the sidewalls above my head because of the air ducts and airbags so I am starting to look at the ceiling. Has anyone attached L Track or something similar to the celing of a wagon or van? Anything to look out for? Whatever I do will need to be tucked up close to the ceiling as not to impede the airbags if they deploy. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks Dave, your site has been tremendously helpful. I used your idea on the rear door handle and am currently reading up on your reflectix window shades. Thank you for all the time you spend detailing your build. I was hoping that someone with a wagon has already tackled this idea as I have to deal with the airbags and venting issues.

Are there any concerns about using the ribs to support // be load bearing? i was thinking about hanging surfboards from the roof ribs and distibuting, lets say 50 pounds of weight, across all three ribs.

Nevermind - i found more info here:
Fargy, please post photos if you end up installing L Track in the ceiling. I plan to do that as well but the snow here in VT has brought my conversion to a halt for now. Good luck and hope it all works out.
