Custom truck camper tie down mounts?

I wanted to ask if anyone has employed any "custom" mounting points to secure their truck camper to the bed of their truck? Of the 2 typical options, Happijac and the Torklift frame mounts I feel like I'd like something more low profile than the Torklifts and stronger than Happijac bumper mount. I realize I could combine both. I was wondering if anyone has seen a different set up? I know Phoenix pop-up campers that are hidden. My truck is a 2018 Ram 3500, SRW, 4wd, diesel, double cab. The camper I'm buying is Northstar Liberty, dry weight 1775. Are there angles of attachment that I am not considering? Four wheel campers attach within the bed of the truck. Lighter goes without saying but still. Would it be reasonable to create attachment points within the bed that run through the bed with significant reinforcement on the underside. Use turnbuckles, heavy duty ratchet straps (like HEAVY DUTY), to attach the camper to bed? With something like E-track used in moving vans etc. you could create multiple attachment points. Say 6 attachment points spreading the load. This would be low profile, secure and strong.
