Toddler carseat safety

We may travel with our grandson at times and I was just wondering how we are going to strap in his car seat. Our RV has a jack knife sofa that sits along the side of the RV. We have no clue if it would be safe to strap the seat there as he should be rear facing. How do others travel with a toddler in a smaller class A?

Maybe a seatbelt extension hooked to couch belt and then down to an eye hook below the couch? Modifications necessary.

my theory is the best place is the belted bench of the forward facing dinette seat (if you have one)....with the table in "bed" mode

as far as I remember from the not so long ago years dealing with car seats and boosters...these things are all intended for use in forward facing seats...either flipped around rearward for the younger kids and forward facing for the older.
They aren't set up for side facing. Most don't even have decent side impact protection.

We did at times set up our kids in booster seats on the sofa but not often. Normally they would be at the dinette. And most of the time we'd have the table up in eat mode but I was always aware that it makes a pretty good head knocker in the case of forward collision.

In bed more the head knocker table is out of the picture.
