Converting Twins to Walk Around Queen

I started tearing out the twin beds this weekend in order to convert to a walk around queen.

The water tank will be moved from under the right side twin to under the queen. It looks like I'll have to plumb the water feed under the floor and come up under the shower (just forward of the current water tank). Is simply using poly hose OK for that, or am I better off using Sch80 PVC for routing under the floor?
I may be able to avoid going under the floor by routing it to the fresh water incoming line which is on the driver's side and installing a check valve (if needed), but it looks like it feeds into the vanity in the forward part of the bathroom. Once I get the left side twin completely out I'll be able to see if I can snake the feed line from the pump behind the toilet into the vanity.

I'll add some pics as I go too.
Here's what the PO had rigged up. All that nonsense has been removed. The PO also cut a big hole in the side of the right side wardrobe (like 75% of the area). Not a huge deal since it needed to come out to have better access to walk around the end of the bed.

Use pex for the line or flexible stuff.

But consider just using back wall.

Assuming you will place something along wall or use trim either way just run new line behind it to get to the system.

Thanks

Pex will work well, and I have the crimper kit already.
I'm hoping I can run it to the incoming fresh water line and tie in there. Would be much easier than going under the floor. I want to source a pair of nightstands to fill the space between the bed and walls; should be able to easily run through the back of one of those.
