Final Note

Lastly, there are no universal standards that apply to Recreational vehicles.

We understand the confusion these situations create. Therefore, Oman Motor Home recommends the following:

Never exceed the maximum capacity as posted in the actual vehicle you will be using. Maximum capacity includes the vehicle, all fluids, all occupants and their gear.
All passengers should use the provided seat-belts. The total number of seat-belts will vary according to the vehicle and according to the floor plan of the actual vehicle you are using.
Child safety seats should be used where applicable. the installation and use of these seats should follow the recommendation of the child seat manufacturer.
Overhead areas designed only for sleeping should not be occupied while the vehicle is in motion.
The vehicle should be properly secured prior to travel. This includes locking the doors and dead-bolting them where applicable. Stow the entry step and secure the outside compartments.
We ask that you use good judgment and prudence in your decisions.
