Car seats in Class C

Looking at a Sunseeker 3170 - can anyone tell me how many seat belts are at the dinette area?
We need to install 3 car seats.
Any other class C's with 4 seat belts and some anchors at the dinette area?
Does anyone put car seats on the sofa?

Thanks!

Hi and welcome:
If your Sunseeker is like my Freelander there will be four seat belts in the dinette area and three on the couch.
I used the the two seat belts on the forward facing dinette seat and hooked the tether strap to the seatbelt floor anchor.
I never used the seat belts on my couch with car seats for my kids.
Hope this helps

Enjoy your travels with your children.

Our 2011 3170DS came with:
Dinett: 2 seat belts (forward facing only)
Front couch: 3 seat belts
Back (kids) couch: 0
First thing I did was to add 3 seat belts ( I have 3 kids) to the back couch were the TV is. This is where the kids sit and play Wii while DW and I have our rare adult conversations up front.

I have now heard that Forest River has started putting 2 seat belts in the back couch area. No more in the front dinett. We've put a infent car seat in our front dinett before. I can tell you, there is no way 3 will phycially fit. 2 booster seats or front facing 5-points, yes.

We have never put a car seat on the couch ( going down the road facing sideways). I would probably say older kids at the outer age limits of 5-point car seats would be ok... No babies though. Kids old enough for booster seats can just use the RV lap belts IMO.
