I'm mainly interested in whether they offer a larger sleeping platform than the trifold sofa bed, which seems rather narrow for a couple of kiddos to sleep on.

Neighbor went with the Jcubes. We went with the Trifold sofa in ours. Neighbor wishes they went with the trifold.
It's not as narrow as it looks in the pictures due to the wide angle lens used. My daughter had two friends come along. All three kids slept in the room. One on the bunk and two on the trifold.
The problem I see with the Jcubes is that they are essentially a folding futon and the kids are sitting basically on the floor. It also makes it difficult for someone to climb into the bunk. With the trifold, when its open the kids can still put some of their stuff underneath it and also store stuff underneath the trifold. With the J cubes, everything has to come off the floor and go (somewhere) for them to be layed out.
We really love the new floorplan that has been redesigned with the loft. Which also gives the kids some other options for sleeping or just hiding away to play and whatnot. I'm glad we waited for it and am really happy with how we configured it.
I hope that helps give you some things to think about.
