Need help! No seats but need carseat ASAP

Need advice! Made an offer that was accepted this morning (we are so excited!!) on an 84 Eagle Motorcoach that is converted. It has no seating currently installed and we need to make our way from MO to Denver to inspect the bus and pay for it...we have a 10 month old that will need a seat installed with seat belt for her car seat for the trip home. Any suggestions how we can go about this in an affordable/safe way?

See if you can find a Ford transit van seat in Denver on Craigslist or wherever (like this: https://www.ebay.com/i/323828549089 only hopefully cheaper) and find a shop in Denver that will install it for you. It's a pretty simple job to bolt in the tracks these fit into; shouldn't cost a huge amount or take a very long time.

Ford

See if you can find some plain Jane 2 point seatbelts at a dealership and just bolt them to the floor to secure the car seat too

Congrats on the Eagle!

A 1980 Model 10 was my first bus. I am still kicking myself for selling it

Lived in it for over six years. Traveled 250k miles covering 44 states and 3 Canadian provinces. Good times

One note on the Eagle Vs a skoolie.

The roof raise was much easier on the Eagle than my bluebird.
