Residential Couches: securing and using seatbelts
« on: August 22, 2016, 08:49:23 PM »
I have a 96 Coachmen Santara Class C. Her name is The Love Shack.

She has a horrible 96 jack knife sofa in the slideout. I'm trying to decide whether to add foam under the slip cover I've put on it, or just take it out and replace it altogether.

If I replace it, I'm looking at rv furniture and it is so pricey and really not terribly attractive.

If I replace with standard furnishings what should I look for in terms of being able to secure it? I'm guessing it needs to contain some sort of metal at the bottom that we can use? And then the next concern is, can I bring the seatbelts (attached to the floor already) up through the couch (after making an opening for them) and use them?

Finally making that dream come true!

Yes you can bring the seat belts up through the new furniture.  You don't need to shop for specifically RV furniture. If it fits through the door it can be used. You can bolt anything to the floor since the floor is made of wood.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.
