Agree about dw, she...........and she drives too.
I would go to a cabinet shop and buy a small piece of 3/4" veneer plywood and cut it to extend further out from the toilet in the area of your feet, replacing the existing platform top and leave everything else as is. You can make hidden triangle braces out of your scrap pieces to add support to this extended portion.
Depending on the height of your platform, perhaps an extension that snaps up like some models have for extending kitchen counters. This could also be made from plywood. These ideas are what comes immediately to mind.

We had a Thor where the toilet was not directly over the black tank, so it needed to be raised for plumbing, most likely the same situation you have. We traded and it's down on the floor now.
For the Thor, I made a step, just a piece of plywood nice size for your feet, with two end pieces to hold it up the correct height. Made it the correct size to fit up on edge in a corner somewhere out of the way. Covered the whole thin with carpet, for bare feet, worked very well and very littlt expense.
