    Any thought on putting kids car seats into a motorhome? Also can the kids car seat fit onto the ‘scoseat’ Mentioned?

    If you have a vehicle registered as 2 seats on the logbook you must re register the vehicle. Insurance would be invalid if carrying a third person without this change.

    Hi I have just followed your link but the seller on eBay does not seem to be operating anymore. Do you have any contact details please.

    We have a problem with seatbelts in a Compass Cruise 750 that we are trying to register in France. It has Atwood rear forward facing seatbelts built in fitted to a strong frame bolted to the steel floor. (Very like the one you had linked to)

    The French want a document saying that the frame conforms to reg 96/36 and 96/38 which we think we have found are destructive tests performed by the vehicle manufacturers on the seat belt frames when originally designed. We have chased Compass (now Erwin Hymer but they are unwilling to give a letter of compliance due to the age of the vehicle.)

    Are there any Compass Cruiser owners out there with any of the original documents? Or does anyone know how we could get a seatbelt frame design certified without destructive testing?

      Has anyone had any luck finding this currently? Or are there specs to have one custom made?

      Hi Joe.
      You can fit lap belts to side-facing seats as long as you have anchor points. Side-facing seats are not what I would call safe even with a belt.
      If it was me, I would try and figure out if you can get two front-facing seats in. Not easy but way safer than side seats.

        My wife and I had this problem. Although it was not ideal, we simply brought the family car with us. Wife drove the car with two or three kids, I drove the RV with at most one other kid.

      I believe there is a clip you attach to the animals harness which then clips round the seatbelt connector. The animal is on the floor, (or in their bed in the floor) the harness goes over the fixed bottom part, then the seat belt is clipped in as normal. So in effect you have both let and person using the same base bit. I hope that makes sense. In theory you could loop the lead round it, but I don’t think that would be strong enough in an accident. But I am sure I saw a purpose made clip to the harness . It is worth asking in a pet shop.or looking on e bay/Amazon.

    It’s dead again. Care to include a brand name or description so we can search for it?

    Hi there.

    Thanks for a really helpful post.

    We just put a deposit down on our very first van today 🙂 . We are getting an Auto trail Cheyenne 590 Fiat Ducato from 2001.

    It only has side facing seats in the back currently, and the dealership are getting 2 lap belts fitted for now, but we do intend to get 1 forward facing 3 point belt fitted on one side.

    Do you know if it is possible to get a frame for a single seat please?

    Cheers

      Hi Vicky
      I do know that a few people have had frames built but I personally don’t know much about it. Just google seat belt frame – most are for two seats but you may be able to contact one of the sellers and find out if they do singles.
      Hope this helps.
