I believe there is room beneath the shelter top for some short, 1/8" to 3/16" screws but why use them? Try some self adhesive Velcro. I attached my tire pressure monitor on the Goldwing emblem on the shelter using the self adhesive Velcro. It's been there for several thousand miles. Anytime you put holes in plastic you run the risk of cracks developing. That shelter is pretty expensive.
