Children Car Seats in Motorhome

We just purchased a 2012 Jayco Greyhawk Motorhome. I needed enough seating with seatbelts for my family. I have 4 Daughters, one is 9 years old, next is 7 years old and have a set of twins that will be turning 2 in February. I know I'm out numbered (at least the dog is a boy!!!)

My question is does anyone have experience with mounting car seats in your motorhome? Was thinking I will have to put the twins forward facing at the dinette and have the older two either at the couch or rear facing in the dinette.

Any pictures would be great.

Thanks

I always read that there are no good mount points for car seats in motorhomes. That the dinette is just nailed/screwed down to the subfloor. Maybe thats changed.

The seat belts in the house portion of our Greyhawk are bolted pretty securely to the slide-out floor. I usually install a car seat for a grandkid on the forward facing dinette bench. I remove the backrest cushion first before buckling the car seat in. If not removed, it shoves the car seat up against the dinette table and makes it hard to get into the seat. I also put a thick towel beneath the car seat so it's hard plastic base does not dig into the dinette seat cushion.
