Car seats in Gemini or compass

Hi, we are under contract on a Thor Gemini but second guessing our choice. Does anyone have first hand experience or knowledge, can a car seat be legally placed in a Gemini or compass? Thanks!

All models have seatbelts, so yeah, legal, buckle that kid seat in. But only the TW has forward/rear facing seat-belted seats. So if you're more concerned about actual safety you should go with that model.

I don't think any MH has the 3 point clips for car seats.

Thor has car seat anchors on some models and select floor plans within those models. Three or 4 years ago when we were looking the anchors were only on models with dinette seating against a wall and the anchors were long rods that went through the dinette seat back and bolted to the body framing. Again it was only select floor plans in select models.

The Gemini and Compass don’t list the safety seat tether but the ACE and Omni do list it in the interior features.

Have you seen any 'crash tests' done with a motorhome?? Typically none are done, but here is a site with info and a video.
I dunno, if the impact does no damage, all the flying objects most likely will.
In a Gemini I suspect the front seat is the safest.
