What are the seatbelt requirements for RVs?

It’s always a good rule of thumb to take a safety-first approach in any vehicle. That’s why all states require seat belts for every passenger in an RV, including passengers in the cabin area. In addition, Outdoorsy terms and conditions state the following:

“You are required to wear seat belts during the operation of the vehicle and to require that all of your passengers wear seat belts. You are also required to meet any laws or regulations concerning child safety seats and other protections for children. You must not leave the car unlocked or with the keys unsecured (such as in the ignition). You must not engage in any prohibited uses with any vehicle you book through the Services. 

Renters acknowledge that the vehicles may be very large and handle differently from passenger cars and other vehicles. The vehicle requires more skill and expertise to operate safely than a car rental. The vehicle requires more clearance above, in front of, behind, and beside them to operate safely, and the use of mirrors and direct visual verification are always required to maintain knowledge of the location of adjacent vehicles and obstacles on the roadway. Due to size and handling characteristics, the vehicle shall never be operated at speeds in excess of 55 miles per hour regardless of the posted speed limit.

The renter acknowledges that Outdoorsy has no control over the number of passengers a renter may allow into the vehicle or the conduct of those occupants while the vehicle is being operated. Therefore, the renter acknowledges that the renter, and not Outdoorsy or the owner, is solely responsible for the passengers on board the vehicle as well as the conduct of those passengers. The renter agrees that, prior to inviting passengers or other guests into the vehicle, they will inform all passengers or other guests that the renter is solely responsible for such passenger’s or guest’s safety and that Outdoorsy disclaims any and all such responsibility. “

As our terms and conditions are linked to our protection package requirements, all drivers and passengers are required to use seatbelts while the vehicle is in motion. Your coverage may be denied or adversely impacted as a guest if you, or any of your passengers, do not use seat belts.
