Roof beams

Does anyone know where the cross roof braces/beams are on an intruder 2001 ford chassis. I need to attach something to the ceiling to a point that is fairly strong. I'm for an looking for an attachment point right in the area above and slightly to the rear of the driver/passenger seat backs.

Maybe you could judge the rafters by looking where the cabinets have screws in them.

I might guess one on the front and back of the air conditioner!

How about heat up the place over night and go out on a frosty morning and find frostless spots on the roof?

I thought about the ac also but a thin drill on either side st the front of the opening did not produce anything solid. I'm in Tucson so waiting for cold won't help. Cabinets are too far back for my needs. I put a call into Thor but tech couldn't find build sheet so waiting for an engineer to try to find something in archives.

Remove ceiling light, speaker or air duct near project. Push wire coat hanger thru insulation and "feel" around. Worked for me - but I was trying to avoid beams for a wire run.

Got the drawings from Thor. I am a little surprised by the drawings. They say there are 9 wooden cross beams in the roof. But it's not as you think. 3 are located together at the point the front cap meets the roof. Just about above the TV cabinet. Then 33+/-" back from there are two beams sandwiched together. (Should be just about where I need them) The next pair is approximately 2/3 of the way rearward in the coach with the final pair located at the rear cap. The rest of the roof beams are some form of plastic foam construction evenly spaced as one would expect of roof beams. But I wouldn't try attaching anything to those points.
