Hello, any tips on types of car seats that use a lap belt only - we have just bought a VW camper and need a lap belt car seat asap since off on hols next week! grin

how old is the child? pretty sure you'd need a 3 point harness which is what we've got in our camper - you may need to get one fitted.

You can get Stage 1's (9-18kg) for use with a lap belt only - like this.

our child is 2. the camper is old and only has lap belts, but I have read that there are lap belt only child seats (mostly designed for middle seats) which is what I'm after!
what's your camper, did you have 3 points fitted? we couldn't see how grin

it's a 1980 T25, the back seats have 3 points fitted but it was done before i bought it. isn't the front passenger seat fitted with a 3 point harness? i sometimes put dd's car seat in the front as she loves sitting up there (obviously no air bag issues in a van that age!)

Have you tried googling -it should bring you to various camper/VW forums where you might find the relevant info. In fact, why not find a good forum and post a request for advice as there are probably loads of people who have been in a similar situation?

We have an old Beetle that came without rear seat belts but we had them fitted and found car seat advice on one of the forums.
