I ended up not buying it. Too many items that weren't revealed up front. Seat belts, needed generator, and heater. A few other small issues. The search continues!

That sounds like a smart decision. It's worth the time to look at a bunch of them and figure out what features are essential, nice to have, unnecessary, or undesirable. Best of luck with the search.

My old 1979 Coachmen Class A had 2 point safety points on it and the mounts were on the floor for the cab it also had safety belts on the sofa and back in the table area. all around it . That area was taken out and a queen bed put in. But there was mounts into the walls for those 2 point belts and the floor in the cab for both fronts. There was no place for a 3 point system. Hope this helps. Not sure all class A's had them or not. Dan

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

My 1983 GMC B+ class was imported from the USA with only lap belts up front...

Easy option for three point seat belts would be to install seats from a new pickup with them built into the seat....

The original poster, LakeTahoe, reported in post #15 that he decided NOT to buy the RV. So all this continued talk about seat belt upgrades is moot.

Yeah you might have them on the seat but the upper anchor that would be on the pillar post of a pickup would not be there. Anchoring that to the mtorhome would require some engineering on how much force would be put on that upper anchor. Not worth the effort. I find that the idea of totally protecting oneself from accidents is the reason that every vehicle today is ridiculously overpriced. Mostly because juries in civil lawsuits think the plaintiffs hit the lottery when they sue. Case in point , the ridiculous suit against Chrysler where they awarded $150,000,000.00 to the family of a 4 year old boy that was killed in a rear end accident in a 1999 Jeep Cherokee. It was hit in the rear at speed by a Pickup truck and went on fire. The pickup owner that hit them in the rear was found to be 1% liable?????????? Chrysler 99%. These Jurors give out awards without thinking of the consequences, higher product cost, higher insurance for everyone, etc. Besides that, the Chrysler they sued was not even the builder/owner of that 1999 Jeep. What will we see next, Ford being sued for the person that gets killed when the drunken daughter of a bar owner in a leased Explorer runs them over, oh yeah that did happen already! They got 5 million from Ford Finance for leasing her the damn car! Take some individual responsibility, it is NOT Everyone elses fault! Bobby
