I think my Mk 1 effort would involve a couple of spreader beams transversely in way of the grab handles or bow / stern eyes along with a central spine to make a lifting frame. I'd attach the pulley the the side of the floor joists to reduce the droop and a lifting eye on the central spine to lift from. I suspect 4x2 timber would be sufficiently strong.

Nice looking van and welcome to the forum.

Keeping and storing a SIB inflated seems a bit counter productive to the concept to me, you have all the performance disadvantages of a SIB with the storage disadvantage of a RIB on top!

The above being said, my solution was to deflate and store in a mouse proof galvanized steel container with hinged lid. I also thought about making a plywood box with glass fibre weather proofing.

Hanging in the rafters you will get bird droppings and dust/debris, will be subject to strong wind at times this might bring other issues like chaffing. Also it's on display to tempt theft.

If you still plan on going ahead you would do well to make dedicated bunks which are hoisted on the four corners. Lack of headroom means four pulleys are needed for a straight lift.

Trying to be helpful sorry if it's sounding negative.

Hi All, hope this helps from our Maidens, West of Scotland boat house. Two 13 Amp winches, a bit of steel and common sense. Doubles floor area of boat house, if you have room!
Best wishes Iain
