Couch Seat Belts Missing!

When I bought my coach, the previous owner had replaced the couch. I didn't realize till we went on our first excursion, that there were no seat belts under the couch. The mounts are there in the floor.
Can anyone tell me what length buckle and what length strap I need to order? I need these for our next holiday in a few weeks and want to order them ASAP.

Thanks in advance for your info.

Don't know if these guys ship to Canada, but looks like there are only 4 lengths, for the lap belts.

Motorhome / RV Seat Belts

If you don't get info specific to your coach PM me and I'll measure mine for total and buckle 1/2 length.

I really think you'd be better off measuring for yourself. Have someone sit in the seat and using a cloth measuring tape or a rope, measure the distance around that person from floor mounting point to mounting point. That will be your overall length. You will also need the measurement from one mounting point to just outside the seat cushion. That is your fixed side length.
Do an internet search and you will find several suppliers. Most stock seatbelts come in three fixed sizes. Pick the one that fits your measurement but allow for some wiggle room. Better too long that too short. There are also several choices in buckle styles, colors, and most important, how they attach to the floor. Since you already have the mounts on the floor make sure you get belts that are compatible.

That's funny! I'm on that site already and noticed the different lengths available which prompted me to start the thread. LOL

I won't use me as the model for measure. I'd need a reel for all the extra lap belt material. LOL

There may be mounts but there may not have been seat belts. That being said you need to measure and then measure again and just to be sure you should probably measure one more time. And oh yea, leave some extra length for different size people that might sit there.
