I would still go the roof section. I used threaded eye bolts 2 nuts and two washers per bolt. Drilled into and through the side of roof section and then sandwiched the roof materials between the two nuts and two washers, one set on the outside and one set on the inside. It is the same strength area as used to mount the roof to base catches/clamps. Plenty of strength.
I would fear bending the support posts if I used them to tie off on and that would become an issue for retracting the supports in my van, a 2011 Forest River Flagstaff 205A.
