    Hi Ray

    From an ARV point of view, they vary.

    Many C Class vehicles will have regular inertia type 3 point seatbelts fitted to driver and passenger seats as these have the truck style cab. Some A Classes have 3 points but you will more usually find lap belts here due to anchorage restrictions.

    Lap belts are also fitted to sofas and forward facing dinette seats also (some even have rear facing dinette belts), those with barrel chairs or easy chairs fitted will also most likely have a lap belt.

    I have never yet seen an ARV fitted with 3 point belts to the "habitation" seating and do not believe they exist, at least not in manufacture anyway.

    I am sure that if I am spouting rubbish here some kind soul will put me right :winky: :roflmto:

    Hope this helps! ::bigsmile:
