One thing I don't quite understand. If you have a 6 berth motorhome, as we do, then you probably have a few people to take away in it - again, as we do.
So, I would have thought, 6 berth MH would equal 6 seats with belts. But it seems this concept doesn't apply to MH manufacturers. Ours has 4 seat belted chair - 2 in the cab & a further in the forward facing seats behind the driver. The rear facing seats behind the driver do not have seat belts.
Now I am aware that the law states that seat belts should be fitted to forward facing seats, that bit i get, but that means i will possibly have 2 people travelling with me that are not wearing seat belts. Can anyone shed any light on the legallity of this?
I must admit that i am a bit uneasy about travelling like this. The option for us, which is one we have discussed, would be for Mrs W to drive her car as well, therefore any additional passengers would travel with her, but that means 2 x the fuel etc, which on a long trip could add up.
Does anyone know - I am going to contact autotrail & ask this direct to them - whether belts can be retro fitted, even if they were to be lap belts?
To me, as i've said, 6 berth should equal 6 belts.
