Installing additional seat belts in Georgetown

We recently purchased a 2007 Georgetown 373DS. There are sofas on both sides of the coach behind the driver and copilot seats. The sofa behind the driver seat has three lap belts and I would like to install three more lap belts in the copilot side sofa (which currently has none).

A few questions:

1. I'm reasonably handy. Is this something that I can do myself?

2. Where is a good source for purchasing seat belts?

3. Does anyone have the same make/model RV or experience doing this that could comment on the specifics involved?

4. We have a 3 year old that will be seated in a booster seat. Any general advice with regards to using booster seats in RVs? We're new to all this.

Thanks in advance!

We added seat belts to our because we didn't have any. You can buy them at most any auto store. They need to be at least 100" long. They bolt to the floor. Ours was in slid but you can do it in the main floor also. Just know what is under there before you drill thru.

The manufacturer installed seat belts for the number of passengers the vehicle is designed and certified to carry. You cannot increase the passenger capacity. Most motor homes are not designed to carry 8 passengers.

The bolts are likely through substantial material, you can look to see.

Best would be to contact manufacturer to see if seat belts were option on that side.

In short, the sofa would need to be sound and secure, then seat belts would need to be anchored to frame or? ??

Look close at existing ones to see how they are done

Remove one to see what the bolt goes through, may be wood on top and bottom with steel in the middle.

Same deal for me though. My 93 HR Navigator sleeps 4 but only has 3 belts. I need to install some or my upcoming trip as well. Surely if it was designed to sleep 4 it was designed to carry 4 right? Were going through Canada and I don't want any trouble crossing Country lines.
