Are your passengers buckled in ?

I have had numerous people I know that RV tell me stories of how their spouses or passengers move around the RV while driving down the road.
They all need to view this video, maybe they would think twice about doing it.

I have a a simple policy, buckle up or we stay parked. If you need to go for a whiz while rolling on I will stop at the nearest SAFE place.

I'll admit it, no.
I wear a seatbelt in my car, as does my family 100% of the time. But, my wife and I grew up in a time in which we moved around a car freely. Heck I would lay in the rear windowsill waving to people behind me.
I will not and cannot imagine being so anal that I require everyone to be strapped in their seats and pulling over every single time someone wants a drink of water or needs to go to the bathroom.
Maybe we are reckless or looking death directly in the face. You know what, if I need to worry about being strapped down or tied up for safety everytime we go out...are we really living?

We buckle up, but have no issues with getting up to go to the bathroom or get a drink of water while moving, etc if needed ( driver excluded of course;-)).

We also walk around as we travel...all but the driver. The driver and copilot wear seatbelts, as required by law. Anyone in the living area probably will not. I don't believe any studies have been done on the benefits of seatbelts on sidewise facing passengers with only belly seat belts. Will these belts protect the passenger or created even greater injury? The manufactures handbook probably says do not allow anyone to sleep on the bed while traveling...my handbook makes that statement. Again, why? With the slides in the bed is a reasonably well protected cocoon.
This is not meant to dissuade anyone, please travel safely and whatever way makes you most comfortable. But you ask so I replied.
Happy Trails.

It seldom comes up for me but I did make a point of installing some extra seat belts for the couch. Even a relatively slow speed accident can turn someone into a projectile.

Hubby and I are both Child Passenger Safety Technicians and Fire Fighters. We know that the only safe seats are the two in front and try to only use those. I did get up twice, on the last trip, when eggs were skidding across the floor, fixed the issue, and got buckled. Anything not buckled is projectile and can kill.

Smelling a freshly brewed pot of coffee while going down the road is priceless!

My wife will get up and move but only when I tell her the road and traffic conditions warrant. Curvy road or heavy traffic she stays buckled in.
