I honestly have no idea!

Are there seatbelts fitted?

If they are fitted they have to be worn in the rear. No one should travel in a side facing seat.

They need to be worn if they are present, if they are not present you can travel without as long as it is a pre 2006 motorhome. Any motorhome made after 2006 should have belts for all the births.
We have a 6 birth and have 2 at front (driver and passenger), 3 forward facing seats with 3 point belts and 2 rear facing seats with lap belts.

I know this doesn't quite answer the question, but be aware if you have rear facing seats that most child car seats are unable to be used on these.

Thanks everyone. They don't have any in the rear and we are going to get four fitted. grin
