Has anyone modified the 179 bed and turned it 90 degrees so it would be going the same direction as the single twin beds in the 191?

Hi and welcome.

The 179 bed is standard queen width (60 inches or 5 feet). So, if you are 5 feet tall or less turning your sleeping position 90 degrees could work, otherwise it would be pretty uncomfortable.

Some people have cut their bed in two lengthwise and then cut one of those halves again so it'll fit lengthwise in the space next to the wardrobe. One advantage to doing this is you can construct an aisle in the middle so that one person can get up to go to the bathroom without disturbing the other person. Of course, that's only feasible if one person is somewhat short.

Thanks for the information.  We are both taller than 5 feet.  I'll see if I can come up with something that may work.

Consider just using the convertible dinette. If you roll out a topper it’s pretty comfortable. And a sleeping bag with a sheet insert saves the effort of making and unmaking the bed every day. You can use a few Velcro tabs to hold the sheet in place.

Once you get the procedure down it only takes a couple of minutes twice a day.
