Hauling a tennis team.....capacity?

We bought a Gtown 377XL 6 months ago. We can take a tennis team for a 2 hour trip to state. How many passengers max in your view? I think 12 max. 2 in front, 4 at table, 4 in sofa/lounge char, 2 in bedroom.

Opinions?

My guess would be limited by the number of seat belts.. Since they are often required.

However many seat belts you have is usually the max number of passengers.

Depends on your insurance limits and your budget for moving violations if you are unfortunate enough to be pulled over or involved in an accident..... (Not worth the risk)...

How many seat belts? State laws require everyone wear a seat belt.

I find it interesting that one of the last comments made on that web site is: "Remember sideways seats are not designated travel seats. Front-facing seats are the safest to travel in". Therefore we with a 378 and dinette do not have any designated passenger seats. Everybody off the boat.

Is that true? I thought I read on another forum that if you're "in the house" area of the RV, it isn't the same as being in the front seat and therefore, you can roam freely. (Ignoring the "is that a good idea" discussion.)

Come to think about it, I took a Coach bus to a convention for work last year and we didn't even have seat belts. I'm not sure school buses have seat belts either.

Is there some exemption for larger vehicles like buses and RVs?

My guess would be state depending. Here in PA everyone needs to wear a seatbelt.. Technically, other than a few types of vehicles (buses for one) but you can only be pulled over if someone under 18 is not belted. You need to do something else before you can be stopped and ticketed for an adult not belted. Every state is diffrent.
