The operative word being “seatbelts”. This does not USUALLY include shoulder harness positions. Even on most (or all) motorhomes, only the pilot and copilot seats have 3 point belts. Some positions have you facing sideways.

Make sure to investigate thoroughly if you’re contemplating child seats or harness points like would be found in a REAL vehicle.

Thanks, no child seats. I know there are shoulder belts up front. Just want to know how many lap belts are in the coach.

Not familiar with your exact unit, but....
How many does it sleep?
In order to be legal, it’s supposed to have as many belted seating positions as it’s rated to sleep from the manufacturer.

If it sleeps 6, it better have 6 sets of seatbelt positions.

That would be nice but my GT5 34H5 "sleeps 5" has a total of four belted seats. A friend's GT5 36B5 "sleeps 8" and has the same four belted seats, the two seats up front and the two forward-facing seats in the dinette.

None of the sideways seats have belts. "sleeps" numbers are from RVUSA; I don't know where they got them. Some sites say the 36B5 sleeps 8 and some say it sleeps 9. It's still only got a total of four seat belt positions.

Right, I'm pretty sure the unit will sleep 9. I'm trying to determine how many belts. I've read that a few states require everyone riding in the unit require belts.

Do you have any links for those other than ones from RV forums?

Thanks for your post. That's interesting! I watched a video today that showed 2 belts (with should belt) up front, 1 in the euro chair, 2 on the couch and 2 on the forward facing bench for the table. Totalling 7. Where your 2 additional belts?
