Non adjustable seatbelt.

I have a 2015 Winnebago Brave, the front seat belts are not adjustable, is there anything on the open market that can be added to make the seat belt adjustable?

It would be a big help, as my wife is 5'5" and unless the seat is pushed all the way back the belt crosses at neck level.

By the way I asked "Winnebago" about this, and was told they have heard the complaint before but there was nothing they could do about it.

What you need is a seat belt extender. They are bucked in between you factory shoulder harness and seat buckle. They are usually made for plus sized people. But in your case, I will allow the shoulder harness to cross over her shoulder and not the neck.

Ebay and Amazon have a large selection.

Seat belt extender is what you need and Winnebago is required to furnish it free of charge. Call them and get ugly. Federal Safety regs require them to do this for anyone who has trouble with the seat belts in your Winnie, regardless of how old it is, and yours is new. If they still say no, talk up the line to supervisors, etc., and tell them if you don't get a "solution" you will be filing a complaint through NHTSA. Some auto companies furnish these in two different lengths, so try seating positions with your wife so you can tell them about how long you need. I had a similar problem with Tiffin and when I finally got to their head of the service department I got my free extender. Had to get ugly, however.
