We paid $2800 for it. It's in pristine condition, and they put a brand new ac system in last year. The owner always kept extra parts etc when they travelled and they gave us all that. I believe it's a chevy. I think what we may do is keep the dinette but make it a horse shoe shape and turn the table and get seat belts installed?

Winnebago connects the seat belts to points that go down to the chassis frame. They can withstand something like a 3000 pound force. It's been a while since I was on the tour where they said what the number was and it could have been 6000 pounds. In any case they meet the federal standards for automotive seat belts.
I am not sure how the do the slides but they still meet the standard.

I would think adding seat belts that are adequately secured could be a problem

Hmmm ok, ours doesn't have any slides so would that make a difference?

It would make it easier to get down to the frame I think.

Our 28' 1990 has 11 sets of seat belts. 4 on the fold out couch, 4 in the dining booth ( 2 on each seat ), one on a single seat and the drivers and passengers seats. I believe most of mine are connected through the floor with metal brackets ( large washers ) between the floor and the nut. Just throwing out some ideas.

They are connected to the actual chassis? I'm not good with repairs cars etc I will be finding someone to do this for me but I don't want holes in the floor either?

Thanks! We are thinking of trying it out this weekend on a overnighter as there is an rv park very close to my house. Figure let's stay close to start off and see how to hook everything up etc. Plus i can drive behind with the kiddos until we get this seatbelt thing figured out.
