Can you post some pictures of the situation? Since it 'pulled off" clearly it was not well-installed in the first place..
Assuming it's an '80s Etap, not the newer raised cabin version (which does not appear to have a traveller) from the few pics I've been able to find it looks like a bridge deck location.
Can you at least access the under-seats area? It may be possible to reinforce the traveler bar with some square tube or someother.. and bolt it down at either end.. even if it means cutting out some strategically placed holes in a liner..(they can be bunged up later)
