Maybe attach folding (telescoping) table legs to the plywood?

My suggestion...

My recommendation would be to not eat or drink anything after 4pm.

Put twin beds in and bridge them with a foldable and removable piece of ply wood and stick piggy bed in the middle. That way everyone gets their space and a lot more length for not so average height Americans.
PS: I will never again complain about my dogs getting in bed with me.

Hey Hoobie - I'm guessing the food comments are meant to be lighthearted - I know how much of a family member Piggy Sue is to you - I'd be hard pressed to laugh if folks talked about my bloodhound that way though I'm sure everyone's just trying to have some harmless fun with you - as your situation is pretty unique!

Daisy (who is 70# and a complete bed hog - no pun intended but that's funny too! ) sometimes sleeps on the couch and sometimes on the queen bed with us. It's a real pain if she hops in there before us because she's stubborn as a mule (wow - just got a visual of THAT in my trailer....WHOA! &#128558 and getting her to adjust to "fit us in" is a real chore!

Here's a suggestion...

We can get more LENGTH in the queen by putting the bolster from the couch behind the top portion of the mattress - kind of like a headboard only it fits down to the board underneath your pillow so you don't notice it there but you get 5 or 6 extra inches around your feet. A 50# critter wouldn't take up much of that extra space ... Give that a shot and see what you think!

Good luck!!

OK That's it…..I'm gonna have to watch that Green Acres episode where Arnold Ziffel fell in love with Mr. Haney's Basset hound, it's my all time favorite love story. As for sleeping arrangements……I think any loving Husband would sleep out in a tent to make it more comfortable for the Wife, and a Cover Girl.

This is why I got twin beds.... My 100lb German Shepard Ziva has one bed and I have the other bed... Because you don't want to wake in the middle of the night.

We definitely need a picture of the sleeping arrangements so we can better assist with a solution. Would be good to have piggy in her pjs.

pig on a platform

Decide on the size of the platform. Cut plywood to that size. Add 3/4" thick strips of plywood or hardwood on 2 short and 1 long edge as stiffeners and to leave depth to fold legs into. Attach legs under side edges with hinges allowing them to fold up against the bottom of the platform. One will be against the front spacer, the other will be offset towards the bed by the width of the first leg. Hinging on the front edge won't work unless the platform is at least as deep as the leg length which is the distance from the platform bottom to the floor. This will fold into a 1 1/4" flat panel (if you use 1/2 inch plywood) if you want to store it under the mattress. You could hinge the whole affair to the bed platform permanently, or mount hinges with removable pins and pull the pins for travel. Sounds complicated but really not. Easy job for your neighbor who makes stuff with wood. I'd do it for cost of materials and a six pack; 12 pack if you want to share. Jeff

Add the thickening strips to all 4 sides so tho hinge mounting screws at the bed edge will have something to bite into. Jeff

My hubby took out the rear twins & built a platform over the the entire area. Bought a 14.5 inch king size memory foam mattress from Costco. Opened the mattress bag over the platform & it expanded over it perfectly. Lots of space on a king & a great night's sleep. Probably enough room for piggy too!��
