RVing Questions: Motorhome seatbelts?
 Passengers in a towed vehicle?

Reproduced from the Leader-Post

I have two questions. The first is regarding the use of seatbelts in motorhomes. What is the law? Do all occupants need to wear seatbelts at all times, or are only those in the two captains chairs required to wear a seatbelt? The second is question is regarding towed RVs (fifth-wheels and bumper hitches). Are you allowed to have occupants in the RV while it is being towed?

ANSWER:
I will answer your second question first. You are not allowed to have passengers in any towed vehicle or trailer. Fifth-wheels and RV trailers are both separate units towed by another vehicle, therefore, it is not legal for a passenger to ride in them. The back of a motorhome is not a towed unit therefore it is legal to ride in the back. Regarding the use of seatbelts in a motorhome, only the driver and passenger are required to use seatbelts unless seatbelts are supplied at the back from the manufacturer, then they must be used. It is illegal to remove seatbelts in any vehicle for the purpose of avoiding their use.
