Thus the folding platforms might be only 18" by 36" by 2" thick. One would have two of these that could more easily be stored on board. I was imagining this arrangement to be set up only when needed at sleep time and then disassembled and put up when underway. When set up it would make it very ackward to get around the main cabin.
