RE: [MedievalSawdust] hinged or sleeved side rails for rope bed
I would use a sleeve and add a leg close to or from the sleeve…

It should work but I would consider adding an additional
leg near that joint to help support the side rail and take stress
off the hinge. ( which is the choice for the joint I would make )

if that is at all clear.
And for a rope bed I'd consider a single rigid slat to keep the
tension of the ropes from pulling the side rails toward the center
of the bed. Properly tensioned ropes are going to put a considerable
amount of pull on that joint.
