Yes they arre required to have a seat belt for each sleeping position provided. Yes we get up underway, not a good idea though.

Not sure, but I don't think the couches have seat belts.
Our previous RV was a Class C and it had seat belts in the dinette, and the couch, as well as the swivel chair. I loved sitting at the dinette when we traveled! Plus it put me closer to the coldies and the bathroom!

Seat belts or not, I think I'd rather take a hit from another vehicle in a motorhome as opposed to a light-weight trailer. It seems to me now that I have seen floorplans of MH's that show criss-crossed seatbelts on the couches. If I had them I'd certainly wear 'em while moving.

^^^ I do recall seeing pictures of a travel trailer that got hit by a mid-sized SUV. The SUV all but ended up inside of the TT. Pretty scary stuff.

Accident

Driving down the road one day came upon an accident. TT hit by another vehicle. TT was just the base frame. Everything else was scattered across the road. Scary.

Some states have laws, others let the Darwin theory take over.
