Roger, how do you manage in a car? Do you have some kind of restraint to lie down?

As it happens, a weather-sensitive medical condition has postponed my RVing plans. If and when I move to Hawaii I will definitely want to get an RV and solve the restraint issue, and also the issue of how to recline and still watch the scenery. In the meanwhile, I lie down flat on the back (middle) seat of a large SUV. I get excellent views of tree tops and telephone poles from there! With some squirming I can get myself strapped using the middle seat belt in an unorthodox way that I can't describe off the top of my head. This is too restraining for long trips, but it is OK for short trips. I have a letter from my neurologist giving me a medical exemption from seat belt use while I figure it out. In retrospect, that may be a mistake, because I have gotten lazy about belting.. I believe I should document in writing just how I can buckle up get a revised letter specifying I use that non-standard method as a medically necessary compromise. That way I will be required to inform my driver about this and the driver will be legally required to get me buckled up. Thanks for asking about this--it prompted me to think it through rationally--at last.
