Looking for missing passenger seatbelt - 96 Monaco Sig.

Anyone have an idea where to look ? For some reason the belt is missing on this very oversize chair on my 96 Monaco Sig. Looks like simple job, but where to find one. ?

Thanks for the reply . So far none of these aftermarket sources have a factory replacement, or if they do, they will not say. Must be some sort of liability issue.? This is an extra wide seat and the mounting point looks to be on the seat frame but I am not sure , as this seat swivels around and has full power foot rest, etc.

The problem is there are a lot of seat belts in an RV that are not really rated to really be used as seat belts except for the 2 front seat ones, the driver and passenger. Those that are really worried about it put in stronger ones than what came with the RV. A lot of the manuals tell you that there are belts that are not rated for crashes. Do a check and find out if what was there was rated for using as crash protection. If not then find a way to put a seat belt there that would be rated to be used in case of a crash.

I find it hard to believe that the passenger seat would not be rated, that must be illegal...In fact, I do be-leave that both front seats are required to have belts, and, that you can be fined without them. I am going into Canada in July, I wonder how strict they might be on seat belts... .

I said the 2 that rated ok are the driver and passenger up front.

Any others double and triple check because I have seen way too many in the manuals or on the belts themselves say that no they are not rated.

I know you did. As far as any other belts, I don't have any, so that's not an issue. Sorry if I was not clear enough as to what my problem is. 1996 must have been the last year for lap belts only, It could be the two previous owners cared little about seat belts. We have become so used to wearing our belts , that it seems unnatural without them , especially the shoulder harness type.
