Ceiling mounts/storage

Just curious if many people here have experience with SMB or diy install and use of overhead mounts to store relatively lightweight items like paddles, poles, etc., up high in fixed roof vans. I plan for L-track on floor and walls and was wondering about the ceiling. Two examples, one with single mounting points longitudinally and one with track sections cross-wise:[ATTACH]Click image for larger version

Did you find a method you have liked? In my current van I have the fixed points and use Thule or NRS can straps to tie ďupĒ surfboards. I donít like the fixed points. My boards vary in width and itís hard to really cinch up my narrow boards compared to wider boards. Iím currently waiting for a smb Build high top sprinter and I plan to use the l track or similar so I can adjust the tie down points.

Not really. My van just got to SMB Texas a couple weeks ago. I decided to do L-track on the ceiling as well. I don’t mind the look of it and I think it will come in handy. Will definitely do two parallel rows longitudinally and maybe some crossways too. I plan to use Quick Fist clamps attached to small mounting plates that can in turn be slid anywhere along the L-track, to store long thin items like poles and paddles.
