Buy a car seat here. They can be purchased at just about any big box store easily.

^ Yup. A basic harness seat/booster seat combo is under $50US.

OP, just make sure that the model that you use is rated for a car seat. Once you know its rated for a car seat, you can find a fire station or police station that is certified to install the seats for you if you aren't comfortable doing it yourself. It is a free service.

What type of trip are you planning? I hope you have a great and safe time!

I doubt the OP will return. This thread is 5 years old and the OP hadn't returned since.

Owning a Class B I have just a couple of comments. First make certain the RV you rent have forward facing seats other than the two front seats. For example, like many RV's mine model comes with a sofa with lap belts on the side behind the driver. Many Class B's have a sofa in the rear with lap belts, but be aware that your two year old will be riding over 10 feet behind you. There is at least one model I know of with 4 front facing individual seats but they are not common.

On edit: I read the whole thread (good on me) but never noticed the date! There is a similar thread on another forum that is current.

Hi there

It has certainly been a long time since I posted on this forum, as we went on the trip in 2015, I think. We did buy a car seat in the States, but we had to get it delivered as we had no access to a vehicle prior to the RV rental. It worked out well, and we ended up being allowed to bring the seat back on the plane, and used it for a number of years afterwards.

It was an incredible trip, and one we are very grateful that we had the opportunity to do. Thanks for the input - now and then ;-)
