Sleep situation question, 17 month old and moving - big girl bed?

DH and I are in the process of getting out of the Marine Corps, selling our house, moving states...sigh, etc. We will probably be living with my ILs this summer for a little while after we sell our house and move to NC and I'm wondering what to do with DD. She's 17 months old and she doesn't sleep well in a pack n play. I can:
1. Take her crib and put it up at their house and move it everywhere with us
2. Try her matterss on the floor...maybe even with a rail
3. Do a Toddler bed
4. Try her in their queen sized guest bed with rails
Any suggestions? She is all over the place in her crib when she sleeps and doesn't know what covers are for. She knows how to get off of our bed but she also has a tendency to fall off if she's playing of not paying attention...so the queen makes me nervous. What do you suggest? When did you move your kids to another bed? I'd even rather just go straight to a twin.

We moved DD to her toddler bed at one year - upon returning from a vacation. We decided since her sleep was all messed up anyway from travel, no reason to readjust her to her old bed just to move her to the toddler. Worked great!

So I say go with options 2,3 or straight to twin.

My dd moved into a twin bed at 15months with big sister and her own bunk bed(bottom of course)and occasionally sleeping with us at 25months. She loves her big girl bed. We never had any problems with her in the twin bed at 15months because she slept between her sister and the wall and they loved snuggling. When they started keeping each other up all night, they got bunk beds and at grandma's they sleep together in a queen-sized bed.

We were evacuated for the hurricane and it was a year before we got to go home so dd was stuck sleeping on a regular bed straight from the crib at about the same age. We did not have a choice. She was just fine, we shoved the bed in the corner and put a rail up on the one side. Go for the bed, if you are comfortable with it. I put pillows or extra blankets on the floor just in case she did fall out.
