Bed platform edge protection?

The raw edges of the plywood bed platform seem to like to attack my wife's shins. Has anyone came up with a good way to cover these edges to finish them off and take the bite out of them? If you could share ideas and/or pictures, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!

We simply wrapped the edge with gorilla tape and it has been working well for 2 years now.

You could try putting pipe insulation around it. I think the Gorilla tape idea was a good one too.

I did the pipe insulation last night. I got three sticks of the type that is more rubbery and not foam. I used the tape that comes on it to stick it top and bottom, then used the staple gun to track it top and bottom about every 6 to 9 inches. Only issue is that pushing the mattress when putting sheets on has a tenancy to make it want to rip it off. I may get some fabric to wrap around the edge to try to alleviate that. It will work for this upcoming trip!

I took my router and rounded both edges using a round over bit

In our previous TT and current FW have used a heavy vinyl shower curtain and stapled it over the whole board and over the edges! Makes the mattress easier to slide and not get snagged as well.

Well I hope it holds up for you. The router round off idea is one I'm gonna keep in mind for a future mod. Great idea. You would think the factory could have come up with a finished product but because it's out of sight it doesn't get any attention. I painted the wood under the bench seats and the drawer for the kitchen utensils. Every time I go to get a spoon I'm glad I took the time to paint the drawer white.
