For most trailers and motorhomes, there are limited options when it comes to seating that can accommodate child restraints. Chairs and couches are either side/rear facing or freestanding, leaving you few legal solutions for safe and comfortable child seating.

All you’ll need is a trip to the hardware store for an inexpensive piece of equipment. With Dave’s help and a bit of ingenuity, you’ll have the little ones buckled up and ready for adventure in no time!

    Hi there! Thank you so much for this video! We are having the hardest time trying to figure out how to get our children’s car seats in our Class C RV safely. I’m wondering if you have a video of how to install these loops you’re talking about? Or if we could go into any auto shop and have them do it for us? Or if this is something we will have to figure out ourselves. Thank you!

    And, the seat has to be forward facing. No side-facing car seats for kids or adults.

    With all due respect this is a video that scares me to death. Creating an attachment point that is not bolted to the frame could easy break loose in an accident. I would caution anyone to use this video as a recommendation.
