From Woodall's chart as mentioned prior, NS and QC, in Canada, require a safety belt, but that is for riding in a pickup camper. None of the states or provinces show a seat belt requirement to ride in a travel trailer. Interesting that some states reference safety glass as a requirement to ride in a fifth wheel but not in a travel trailer. Maybe someone builds a fifth wheel bus? All quite odd. Suggest watching the movie and traveling in the TV only. Pat

Thanks-- I often wondered what happened in Bambi I, as the fridge door had a poor latch. We would open the front door after driving, find a white wine bottle that had somehow rolled under the dinette, but the fridge door innocently latched shut.

For anyone who hasn't seen Lucy and Desi in The Long, Long Trailer, it is highly recommended. There is a hilarious scene when Lucy decides to prepare dinner en route.

We did this when we first purchased our Bambi.

I had trouble finding the follow up video we made a year later when I'd added shock absorbers and switched to a pivot point projection type hitch.
Here it is!
The ride is much smoother after these changes.

Hi

Consider that the "is it legal?" thing likely involves many laws. A lawyer would have to be involved to really answer the question in any state or province. It also is just the start. Does your insurance cover people in the trailer? Does the other guy's insurance cover people in the trailer? How about product liability coverage? It just gets more complicated the deeper you dig.

As Nike says "just Do It" and get back to us with the results to include any bruises or cuts sustained. Oh an be sure to do it where there are potholes so you get the real effect of being pulled in the AS.

Same as a vehicle that came without belts, like my old car?
