    Maximum occupancy?

    I'm only referring to short day trips.

    Maximum occupancy?

    CA seat belt laws for class A, B, C motorhomes. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.cdph.ca.gov/HealthInfo/injviosaf/Documents/RV_ChildPass_JDeCarli_VOSP_June18_2015.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwiTloDNqNbMAhUN-GMKHXwUDF4QFggpMAU&usg=AFQjCNF8iuBigj5WwVXbgGG5iRYDD6UWCQ&sig2=9bxlFI-IqKB5CrSDtq32zg

    From CA department of public health vehicle occupancy safety program. There was one private site that attempted to classify all of the states and their laws. I'm guessing they erroneously just called the first chp they could find and were given incorrect information.

    From the CA DMV website Safety Belts Always wear your safety belt when driving. Even though many RVs accommodate passengers in places where safety belts are not required by federal law (i.e., dining table), if the area has a safety belt-wear it. Riding in a place which is not equipped with a safety belt increases the danger of injury in case of a collision.

    In CA seat belts are not required for passengers in an RV. This is not Canada.

    Maximum occupancy?

    Hey all, I have a 1986 20' Mini-Cruiser. What do you think the maximum occupancy is in terms of adults (I don't have any kids. Or we could assume 1 adult = 2 kids if you like.) Years ago, I drove a 1976 Chinook around with 7 adults and it bottomed out around corners. That is, around corners the wheels scraped against the wheel wells. Luckily, I didn't have to drive to0 far. Now, the 1986 Mini-Cruiser is bigger than the 1976 Chinook. I believe it was a 16 footer. This is a 20 footer. Any ideas??? Personal experiences?
