After 45 years of marriage, I haven't yet gotten tired of crawling over my partner or vice-versa.

We did our first two week mobile camping trip in Tanzania in 2002. Like you, there was a trek from the tent to the bath tent, which my wife made several times a night. With me of course tagging along carrying the flashlight. Standing outside that tent waiting on my wife to come out is probably the scared-est I have ever been.

What made it even worse is that our guide liked to shine a flash light out into the surrounding area at night when we were sitting around the campfire, so that we could see all of the eyes out in the darkness staring back at us.

Recently, we went on a two-week fairly rugged tent-camping trip to Southern Africa. (No, not in one of those house-size glamping tents with king-size beds and bathrooms!) Our tents were 6'x6'x4', just enough space for two and their gear. After being warned of the LARGE CARNIVOROUS (and elephants) wild animals that are active at night I was mighty scared to go out in the dark to pee in the Western bathroom a walk away. Well upon hearing this, my DH immediately proceeded to use an extra water bottle in the middle of the night. This was not an option for me, however. I made do by “holding it” as long as possible or jumping out as I do when backpacking. I learned to be very fast. When I got back home I was motivated to find out how females might pee in a tent without having a chance of "spillage". This is the "discreet" video I found. Too bad I did not have access to these simple supplies while on our Africa trip. Mind you, I do not suggest this method unless absolutely necessary. I do appreciate my porta-pottie.

Hey, it all worked out for me in Africa and I did not get eaten! I totally recommend a rugged tent-camping trip in Africa as we had amazing experiences, saw amazing creatures, amazing scenery and amazing people.

I built two twin beds in our Lil Snoozy. Both are 36" wide, the side one is 30" in the sofa mode and slides out 6" for sleeping. The sofa arm rests are 6" wide to fill the 6" gap when set up at night.

Lengthwise bed problem solved

PROBLEM SOLVED
Thanks for all the advice, I went with the suggestion to extend the bed and go lengthwise.
Since our Burro is the "ballroom" version (no bathroom), it was easy to extend the bed 16", without blocking anything, giving a RV queen size, about 60" x 72" with a side pocket on the right beyond the closet that the pooches immediately adopted, leaving the rest of the bed to us! I bought a new 4" queen foam mattress and trimmed it to size, and kept our 2" memory foam topper for a permanent set up, which is so comfortable we will never go back.
I can get up in the night now and the wife doesn't even miss a beat in the snoring!

As a result I have a full set of Wide Body Burro rear cushions that are available free to anyone that needs or wants them, in Albuquerque area.
Thanks again FG community!

Congrats, sounds great (esp. with the provision for the pooches) and looks good! Nice to "engineer" a solution, isn't it!?
