Child retraints / car seats
Safety for children in RV question. We're taking the kids to Disney, and I'm not sure where to put them. (Ages 5 and 9, both distance runners, so very thin)
Articles say that you can't use car seats with bench seats or rear facing seats. (our rig has the two benches (with the table), and a couch, all of which have lap belts, all of which, pulled as tight as they can possibly go, leave about 14" between their waists and the belt, so they are virtually useless).
What are my options? If they're on the couch, they'll go through the windshield, if they're on the bench, the table will destroy them/go flying through the windshield. Is the bed over the drivers a safer option for them? (although, not technically legal in most states) Taking a separate vehicle is not an option, at this point. I realize there's no super safe resolution keeping them in the RV, but of my options, what's the safest?
Maybe there's an option I haven't considered??
