Dog restraints 

In both my previous motorhomes I had two rear seats with safety belts so I purchased the appropriate fitting to use with a dog harness.

I now have a Nuevo EK which of course only has seat belts for the driver and passenger 

We are both particularly safety conceous and wish to give our border terrier (George) the same protection we have when wearing our seat belts.

Is possible to fit a extra seat belt point behind the cab area so I could use my dog harness 

Next few trips either the dog or the wife stays at home.

We use a harness for dog walks anyway, so keep her in that and connect it with a webbing strap looped through the bed frame.

It secures her well but with enough slack for her to stand and stretch out now and again, but in an impact it should hold her as secure as we are in seat belts.

I'd never drive with the dog loose, in an impact they would be badly injured or worse if thrown down the length of the van.
