Runaway chairs

We just purchased a 2012 Baystar 3002 which has a retractable dining table and 2 comfortable padded chairs. Nobody (including the dealer) has a suggestion as to how to secure the chairs from moving while traveling. Right now we put the chairs on the bed. Any thoughts?

Last coach came with 4 chairs. We used Velcro and warped it around the left and right legs of the chairs on each side. Worked for us.

MY rig came with some stainless straps screwed into the floor through which strap webbing could be threaded then buckle the chairs down to the floor in transit. I changed the configuration when I added a folding table and credenza and now I just use webbing to go around the credenza and the chairs all at once and buckle it secure. I used to lay the chairs on their back in from of the credenza to do this however now I leave them standing.

This webbing material and buckles are available at Lowes, Home Depot, Ace, not expensive.

Welcome freerollr to the forum & irv2.
Congrats on your new Bay Star many safe miles for you.
The chairs should stay on the carpet and not move if you have a carpet in the slide floor.

The chairs will make indentations in carpet and will hold to floor.
The table will also do the same thing.
If you are concerned you can use long Velcro straps around the table legs as someone suggested.

I agree. Ours are on carpet and never move.
