jrizzo406 - if this question is in regards to the side-facing discussion, it depends on size/age of the child. Car seats cannot be used sideways - if your grandson is large enough to no longer need a carseat that is a different issue. ST

Safe seating for toddlers in Class C MH.

Sunseeker I saw today also has the child restraint rings to latch the toddler seats to in the dinette.

It the event of a front end collision, kids in car seats without shoulder belts would pivot forward , heads hitting dinette table. I don't think that there is a truly safe way for kids to ride facing forward.

First off toddlers should be facing backward until they are certain length-- age usually around 18 months to 2 years.
Then they can face forward. A good child seat ( we have two each around $250) will have shoulder harnesses inside the child seat. There have been documented cases where the seat has been found outside the car after an accident and the child still harnessed and safe in the seat. But in actuality that seat should be not going anywhere with the two proper child restraint rings and a third (sort of a backup) strap that goes over the back and tethered to a 3rd ring. There's no way you can put a regular seat belt shoulder harness around these children in these seats.

That's where the toggle strap ring is located in my Minnie Winnie 22R. We use if for my girlfriend's two-year-old with no problems. The only "hassle" is that we have to take down the dinette table (for safety reasons) before we put him in the seat.

Another thing, install some "safety catches" on your overhead cabinets above where the child sits. Things shift and the cabinet doors may open and spill everything out. We did and have peace of mind.

We just took our first trip with our grandaughter in a car seat at the dinette. The carseat on top of the cushion hit the table. Removing the cushion and sitting it on the seat base worked just fine. She is 2.

I think I might have been more inclined to remove the table...not the cushions. I also like the idea presented about installing the child safety latches on overhead cabinets! ST

Yes, tried removing or turning the table. Lost the convenient place for books, blocks and various other distractions we had for her.

Thanks! His Mom made the decision to wait until he's older to ride in the RV while moving. For now he sits on the sofa in Grammy's RV and watches his iPad while we work sharing the sofa with the 90 pound dog.

New to RVing and have purchased a 28b Winnebago Aspect. With the u dinette and wondering if we will be able to safely secure our grandson's car seat?

The owner's manual should have the information for securing child safety seats. If not, or you have more questions, call Winnebago's customer service.

Most car seats have the ability to be attached with lap belts or shoulder belts in addition to the latch connections. We have an older Minnie Winnie which has the sofa facing forward, and attach the car seat to the middle position using the lap belt.

If you have the belt cinched down tight enough (I will sit on it to compress the cushions), the car seat is very firmly secured. It's all about installing the car seat properly, which for alot of people is difficult to do with seat belts. But certainly not impossible if you know what you're doing.

If you are still unclear, your local highway patrol may be able to help you install the car seat.
