There is no law that says you have to have a passenger seat. Go rip it out.

If I get the OP's original question correctly, then the answer is simple. The bus you are converting doesn't have a copilot seat so why would there be a law requiring you to install one.

Are you going to leave the door there or just have the big empty space with the highway viewable from the front couch? Enjoy the rebuild as they can be as much fun as the camping and traveling are when you are done.

I doubt any law mandates the seating you must have...you can have bare floorboards if you want. BUT....every passenger must have a seat with the appropriate restraints.

(this is a generalization of course. But most states have a law similar in nature.)

Most sofas in motorhomes that I know of have seatbelts. If you want to lay about in the bed and not be secured...up to you really. Be aware that there is case law out there that an insurance company can deny you coverage for an injury if you were not using available and mandated safety equipment. "Oh, you were ejected from your car in a crash because you were not wearing a seatbelt? Sorry...." (A police officer in Tazewell VA was killed in a traffic crash where he was responding to a call. For some reason he did not put on his seatbelt and was killed. His family was denied death benefits based on this error...)
