The problem is that no matter how you lay out a split king, it's still tough to make you way around it. So I'm trying to figure out how to play our cards so we win.
See, the situation is like this.
- I get up once or twice a night, and get up earlier than my wife of a morning.
- I want her to have free access to the bathroom.
- I weigh nearly twice what I should, so crawling over her would be a bad idea.
- She has sleep problems, so I want to do NOTHING that would be likely to mess with her sleep.
Bunks? Fine for temporary (like getting across the country) but less so for full-timing. Hammocks? Dude, you're smokin'...
But we might do a transverse mounted standard twin for her, on the side nearest the bathroom. I would have another standard twin next to hers, which slid away from the headboard by six inches or so, with a 'fill' cushion for use under my pillow: instant XL twin! And I could tuck the mattress back under the headboard when I get up, giving me 89-75=14 inches of room to scoot around the foot of the bed.
At 400 lbs I am a bit dubious about the idea, but I *did* consider ladders and slides on each side so I could climb up and slide over her out of or back in to bed... Might lead to comments by visitors, too. Trapezes? Naah - low ceiling.
Still thinking: I've also considered a tunnel along the center axis of the bus, so I could crawl UNDER the bed to go use the facilities (too weird, not to mention difficult), and get-out-using-the-emergency-exit-and-walk-around-to-the-front-to-get-back-in (too cold, and might scare the other campers). Or align the twin beds on the bus axis, each against an outside wall, with a decent walkway between. And my mattress could be on rollers to snug it up against my wife's to make a king bed out of the combo: either one of us wants to get up and I press a button or some such and roll my mattress away to create the walkway. But I could also imagine the catch giving way and me suddenly disappearing - might really kill the mood.
Strike that. Any constructive
