3170: 2 cab, 2 sofa, 2 kids sofa, 2 dinette. (8) total
3010: 2 cab, 3 sofa, 4 dinette (9) total. This is changing. There are only 8 maximum sleeping positions so it should be (8) total. Also when we have the recliner option there will only be (2) in the recliners so we'll have the sofa match that.

Taking out the cushions certainly helps the car seat fit better.

I ran into the same issue of where to safely put the car seat in the coach. I'm pretty sure every car seat maker will tell you that putting your car seat in a sideways setup, like on the couch is a bad idea. You gotta support the child's neck.

We take cushions off the dinette side that faces forward, lower the table top completely and then I've installed some steel Eye bolts long enough to bolt through the heavy duty square tubing beneath the dinette seating area where the seat belts are bolted. You have to raise the thin board under the cushion to install these.

Our particular car seat has seatbelt like latches that clip right onto the Eye bolts on both sides. I wrap the center strap around the square tube and cinch it down.

Seems to be very strong. It's not pretty but all I care about is keeping the little one safe.

We tried using the seat belts provided to strap the car seat in with but the latch always ends up right in the small of the little girls back which is no fun on long drives.
