Expedition Cargo Area Cover

Hi all, hope some one can help me.
I recently purchased a 2002 Expedition XLT 4x4 and traded in a 91 Explorer Sport (with 232,000 miles on it :-)
My Explorer had a cargo cover that somwhat resembled a window shade, mounted behind the middle row seat that pulled back to the tailgate and complety hid the cargo area.
I am a photographer covering NASCAR racing and am concerned about the cargo area of my Expedition being so easily seen.
Anyone know of a supplier who manufactures a cargo area cover for an Expedition? The dealer told me Ford doesn't have one.

Thanks for the help.

Well, I was put in contact with an auto interior company and they sewed me a square piece of interior vinyl the size to cover the cargo area.
We put grommetts in the corners, then I had to devise a way of securing the front end. I drilled holes in the side wall and put in small hooks using car interior expanding plastic rivets. So far it is holding...we'll see. The rear side was secured with the same small bungee cord to the netting mounts already installed in the back of the Expedition.

Better than nothing...same color as interior, so it almost looks like part of the original truck.

Take some pictures so we can see how it turned out.
