Passenger seat belts?

Any knowledge on passenger seat belt laws? We've got a 1995 GMC Vandura with no passenger seat belt. Is this illegal?

Motor Home Seat Belt Laws - Camping World RV Sales - Macon Not sure how reliable it is.

For all you new Camping World RV buyers asking about the seat belt laws, Although you have the option of sitting anywhere in your motor home--from the kitchen table to a couch--this doesn't mean it's safe to do so while you are on the road. Seat belt laws and other regulations apply to motor homes, also called mobile homes or recreational vehicles (RVs), according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Laws vary from state to state, so you should do your own research on specific regulations. Generally speaking, though, it is always a good idea to strap in.

Front Seat Only
Many states require only people sitting in the front seat of an RV to wear seat belts. These states are: Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
All Seat Regulations

Some states require all passengers in RVs to use proper restraints regardless of where they are seated within the vehicle. These states are: Alaska, California, Colorado, Delaware, Washington, D.C., Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Washington and Wyoming.

Copy that. Should I assume we're considered a mobile home?

More on the order of an RV, if in the conversion process.
