    Following a thread on the Motorhome List on seats in motorhomes the follow might be an eyeopener for some.

    "Since 20 October 2007 manufacturers have had to declare, and fit belts to, all seats in the rear except those seats intended solely for use when the vehicle is stationary. At the moment it is not illegal to carry passengers in unbelted rear seats as long as all belted seats are in use. However this will become illegal in May 2009."

    There are more details at UKMotorhomes.net - FAQs

    Regards

    Many modern motorhomes have been addressing this for a while. I had a 2005 Bessacar with six belted seats, 4 were at the dinette.

    The last time I read the regs I think I concluded that in many motorhomes that only have belts up front, if you travel with chiildren, they will take priority over that three point belt in the front passengers seat. Is this right?

    My RV has 10 sets of belts 5 of which are forward facing so we are spoilt for choice::bigsmile:
