howdy, im getting ready to pull the trigger on a used smb. for quite a while now ive been thinking that we would go with an eb 50 or 51 layout, possibly with extra capt seat, which is similar to our old syncro westy, which worked fairly well for us with our two kids, (3 and 5) but wanted to know if anybody has any thoughts on side facing seats and their compatability with children/safety. im getting cinflicting opinions on the safety of the lapbelt situation for these kids as they get older. i did read that according to chp guidelines, car seats are never to be used on side facing seats. but what about when they are older? would you feel comfortable overall with kids in the gaucho seats?
im starting to ponder again a floorplan that has four captain seats maybe...
but i must say there are some really good layouts with the gaucho type seats.
anyway, just wondering if anyone has any particular thoughts on the subject! thanks, jas
