Can I add seat belts?

I have a 1999 Pace Arrow 33ft and it has 6 seat belts. Well, we are now looking at 7 going camping this summer if Covid-19 allows! We have the 2 front seats, 3 in the pull out coach and 1 on the single chair. Could I add 2 to the kitchen table seat? I would image I could not have seat belts for the people at the table facing backwards, but I am thinking of the ones facing forward. My wife worries that the seats are wooden. I have enough old seat belts from old cars, that I was thinking of drilling holes throw the floor and bolt them down. I would put a 7" x 7" 16 guage plate under the floor and have the bolt go throw it and then a lock nut.

What do you think?

If these are adults perhaps taking a car along would work better. and drive separately. Then you'd have a vehicle for siteseeing, etc.

They have a frame in the dining area for the seat belts to attach to. Unless that is there, I would not do that.

My former coach had a booth dinette and there were seat belts in the forward facing seat for two people. This was a factory install. If your dining area is a booth, then I believe your plan would be OK with adequate reinforcing of the anchoring area. To be honest, however, I cannot remember if the frame of the forward seat itself was reinforced with steel tubing or not. I do remember that the framing was wood, and not particularly robust.

I purchased the seat belts (eBay) & added to the dinette on both sides. If you attach to the floor you make need the extender piece.
