What seat should I put my son in, in a motor home?

Here's my problem: This weekend we'll be going camping in my in-laws motor home, and I'm not sure what to do with my 4 y/o son. He always sits in the back seat in his booster seat in the car; but the motor home has only lap belts in the back, and you have to have a shoulder belt with a booster. I still have his older 5 point harness seat, but his shoulders are above the straps, which they are not supposed to be. So here the bottom line: Do I put him in his booster seat in the front seat or in his old carseat in the back?

Are the straps that are below his shoulders at their highest position? If not... raise them up. If so.... personally I'd be buying another 5 point harness seat before I'd go with either of those options. Neither choice is safe.

Then again, my 4.5 year old is still in a 5 point harness and will be for at least another year. ;)
