Sleeping the other way in a pup

DH hates having to climb over me in and out of bed, and we both like room for the things you would put on a bedside table. Since we no longer have kids with us in the pup, I realized we could turn the queen mattress the other way and have room on the sides, while getting in and out at the foot end. We bought used with the intention of gutting and customizing, and this is the first step. DH is making a platform to support the foot end of the mattress when we turn it, with storage underneath. It also worked at that we want to sleep in the smaller bunk (water view out the windows), so we will put the queen mattress over the existing one, and not have to put anything else under it to make it the right height. We are both old and achy, and think having a fatter mattress is a good idea anyway. We've got a spare memory foam topper that we may also use.

Sounds cool. The DW and I are thinking the same but on the frt end of our pup is a king so we might not have to do the mod (haven't measured yet) the only thing I can think of is watch the top clearance.

Wife and I sleep on the front king sized rack across the mattress. No problem but I'm only 5'7" and wife is shorter. Much easier to get in and out for us.
