New Seats Requirement

Hi All. So I am the proud owner of a 1975 26ft MH with the rear bunk bed configuration. Just getting used to 'Jerry' but the driving position is horrible. So I am looking at options. There seems to be no mechanism for moving the seats to the optimum position. Also we only have lap belts fitted and the Mrs is not keen on the safety aspect. So folks my question is how do I remedy? New Seats? Modify existing? or put up with what we have? Thank you.

I had new seats built with high resilience foam, seat heaters and a 6 way electric base. They are great.

There are big liability issues selling 3 point belts that have not had all the proper engineering. You can build your own but it's anybody's guess how well they will work when needed.

I had not even thought of the liability issue. Your seats sound really great. I like the idea of the heaters.

I don't use the heater much but the wife does.

I don't think there is a described way of fitting three point harnesses to the ribs. However, it's probably technically possible to bolt something through the floor. Obviously, it would need professional input
