need shoulder belts for my seat belts

I own a 2000 Country Coach and the drivers and passenger seats have seat belts only. No shoulder belts. Has anyone added shoulder straps to the seat belts? What would be used for an attachment point? Does anyone know of a company that sells what I need?

The difficult part is attachment point on the coach sidewall. Hopefully someone on the forum might have a suggestion. You are going to need to find a structural hard point to attach the belt too. With Country Coach having been acquired by Winnebago I would give them a call to see if they have build diagrams going back to your model year.

As an alternative, but at a much higher cost, would be to replace the seats with integrated lap and shoulder belts.

We looked into adding new seats with integrated lap and shoulder belts. Two remodeling companies told us they could not legally do it and would not sell us the seats, BTW.

I have thought about this as well. I decided that if I hit anything big and hard enough to need a shoulder belt in a 38k lb RV I probably will be in a whole world problems.

I checked into it a little and was told that it was built on bus chassis designed to have regional passengers unstrapped so laps are just fine.

I agree they would be nice to have for peace of mind though.
