What are these straps for?

Anyone have any idea what these two straps are for? I found them under the front passenger seat of my Vista 35U. As you can see (if my photo uploads), they are clear plastic with a silver/chrome snap on one end and two holes near the other end.
One is 12" long and the other is 24" long. Thanks!

I have a pole and a table that can be put between the front chairs. My straps like these are used in the closet to strap in the pole and table to the inside.

I have a Sunova. Those straps are located and fastened under my kitchen sink on the back wall. They are used to hold the corian countertop that fits into the sink opening when you are not using it.

Your parts lists "tie-back clear plastic 22" but doesn't seem to show on the blowup!
so if those look like 22" it might say they are tie-backs and that might mean for the front curtains if you have some that wrap around the windshield and you might want to tie them back when open?
Yessir! You may have a real mystery!

Thanks everyone for your replies but Richard is right - still a mystery! The table for between the front seats has a strap in the closet already with 2 snaps on it and the pole is attached with a clip. There is no countertop to cover the sink and no mating snaps under the sink. Lastly, we do not have a front curtain to tie- back. I'm still scratching my head about these two straps.

On my Sunova 35J and current Vista 35B those are used to keep the pocket doors secured while traveling, you slide the door into the wall and then those straps go around the door to keep in place and not bang open and closed while underway. You unsnap when parked to allow you to open the close the doors as needed. I took a quick look at your floorplan and you seem to have a pocket door going into the bedroom, spares maybe?

Well, since it is still a mystery find a good use for them, then you discover what they really are for.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Well thanks everyone for your ideas and comments. I thought the comment about straps for the sliding pocket doors was a real possibility but we have a metal u-shaped clasp for those. I guess they are just a gift of extra parts from Winnebago. I like Wayne's suggestion. Think of another use for them (or throw them away), then it will become obvious what they were really for.

Do you have the optional StudioLoft Power Bed with Ladder? It looks like the straps to tie down the ladder.

Jos56, we do have a loft bed! So where do these straps mount? Currently, the ladder is just laying on the floor in the storage area under the main bed.

What ever you do, do not throw them away. You'll discover what they are really for, need them right away, and they will take weeks to order in new ones and they will be very expensive.

I have a different rig and we don't currently use the loft for sleeping, but I recognized the straps. We use the loft as a big shelf for wet weather gear and packsacks. You'll have to look for the male ends near the loft, where it would be handy for users.

So, it looks like the ladder and the removable pedestal table are stored in the closet and at least one of the straps holds the table. https://www.winnebago.com/models/pro.../class-a/vista

I have a 2019 Winnebago Vista 29VE. I found those straps to be extra for the bedroom pocket door. My ladder for the loft bed stores at the foot of the bed in 4 spring clips. Out of the way and no rattles. I added 2 more spring clips at the same location to hold a full size broom.

One is 12" long and the other is 24" long. Thanks!

On my 2001 35U they are used to tie back the front accordion pleated windshield curtain when driving. On is long and the other short though each side of the curtain is basically the same size. Mine were attached to the wall of the coach when the curtain was installed on the windshield and around the side windows in the cab area.
