Re: Sleeping preference?
You only need to unsnap the ones near the boards edges. For the forward queen a non issue as the whole thing lifts on hydraulic cylinders. For the aft quarter berth just don't snap together where the bundle board goes. Don't see your concern a major issue unless you are going in and out of the lockers under the berths frequently. The cost was a shock for a bunch of pieces of plastic but it's a buy once expense so think its worth it.
