Question Chassis installed 3 point and/or latch system seat belts

My family and I are getting ready to purchase our first RV, a Forester 3171. One of my big concerns is car seats for our kids who are 1 and 4. I've searched the internet and have come across several sites and threads proclaiming or dismissing the safety of seat belts in motorhomes. There are some threads on here to but none are really telling me how or who can properly install these belts into the vehicle.

We would want the 3 point belts and LATCH installed in the forward facing dinette seats and the 3 point belts in the side facing couch and rear facing dinette seats.

From what I've read seat belts can be installed in the metal frame. Most people have said they've installed them themselves but we would like them to be factory installed or at least a licensed mechanic through a dealer to install them.

The dealer that I did speak with while touring different RV's had no clue about this and it seems that it hard to get a contact at Forest River to ask this question directly.

So my question is has anyone had any type of belt professionally installed or have researched this with any luck, (or none).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
