Child car seat in a class A??

As you can see in my signature I have a Hurricane Class A MH.

Next summer (2016) we want to plan a trip to the west coast and
take our daughter & two grand kids (one will be 7-1/2 & other 1-1/2)

We have a couch and a banquette both with seat belts. Both will
work with the old kids car seat, but I have questions about the younger
one's car seat. He is 8 months old now and weights 23 lbs. so by the
time next summer comes along he will be a bruiser.

But I still need to anchor his car seat.

What have others done? Open to opinions and comments.

We have a 5 year old son and an 18 month old daughter and we put both of them in the forward facing dinnette bench seat. It works fine, well until they start annoying each other

Dropping their iPads is the tough part or my wife.

My wife and I took my 10 MO Daughter, 6 YO son, and 12 YO Daughter on a two week 3800 mile round trip this summer. We had the baby seat secured on the 'Dream Dinette' and my sons car seat secured on the sofa directly infront of the TV. The only complaint from the kids were when they were buckled up on the 8 hour travel days. We did take fuel, lunch and stops every 2 hours to stretch, but 8 hours is a bit much for anyone to be restrained, especially kids.

Thanks for the responses, The Guildrys how did you anchor the youngest child's
rear facing car seat in the banquette? Just the seat belt or is there a anchor point
I have not found yet?

I used the seat belt option. I did have to remove the cushion and lower the table to get the base snug and so the carrier would fit, which deemed the table useless on the drive. I did not see any other options to secure the base.
