Help: How to make a wood partition in a E350 Van

I am looking to build a wood partition dividing my E350 van but not sure how I am going to be able to do that considering I can't drill into the ceiling and walls. Any ideas?

My E-250 has an inner "skin" that while not complete should give you anchor points.

Can you give some more details? Maybe some pics of where you want this partition to be in the van, and what is it for, just a visual barrier or are you hoping to hold back a pack of angry wolves?
I'm sure we can come up with something.

If it's temporary I'd get truck bed cargo bars and see about going across or vertical as your anchoring points. Then go as light as possible on the wood.

But yeah, more details, like why can't you drill into the ceiling, what is there now would help- like can you glue to the ceiling and floor?

There are stiffeners in the roof, you can bolt / screw into those. Plenty of companies out there make metal walls for panel vans, you could also buy one of those and clad it in whatever you like.

My van has a wall, bolted to the floor and roof stiffener, it's very very solid, just a basic wooden frame, covered in ply and material.

That's a great little air compressor, isn't it?
