Can anyone detail (in laymans terms) the law on seating arrangements in the back of a van.

It is my understanding that as my conversion was carried out before 2008 that I am not legally required to have seatbelts in the rear but can still carry passengers, however, I wish to change the layout and wish to put my seat/bed to run along the side wall behind the drivers seat. This way I can increase my seating capacity to a total of 6 and have larger, more comfortable bed, yet still have a fridge/sink/hob etc. in the rear portion of the van.

I do not want to go to all the trouble and expense to then find out that it is not legal. If I do this would I need to (somehow) attached 3 seat belts to the bedframe/seat? I notice most RnR beds are advertised as 'crash tested' is this a legal requirement?

Advice from reliable sources is gratefully received. Thanks
