Seat Belts

The Land Transport Rule: Seatbelts and Seatbelts Anchorages requires that all motorhomes first registered in New Zealand on or after 1st October 2003 must be fitted with at least as many seatbelts as there are sleeping berths. All side facing seats must be fitted with lap type belts and all forward or rear facing seats must be lap/diagonal combination belts. If the motorhome does not have 4 seatbelts fitted you may get extra fitted by a NZ Transport Agency approved engineer but it would then be required to be certified by a Low Volume Vehicle Technical Association certifier.

If you are looking at purchasing/hiring a vehicle, we would suggest that it would be easier and cheaper to ensure that the vehicle you select has at least 4 seatbelts already fitted. The effect of the rule is that all persons in the motorhome when it is moving must be wearing a seat belt.
