Dont quite follow why a grabber would work to tuck in sheets. We have used one in the past when we lost things behind a murphy bed.

DW uses the grabber as a pusher when open.
For bottom sheet she rolls the top of mattress to the bottom. Puts the bottom of that sheet on & uses garters on the corners to keep them inplace.
Then she flops the mattress back to the top of the platform. BTW we replaced the "concrete" pad called a mattress with 2 6" foam toppers.
Once the top is back inplace the bottom corners are tucked on with holding garters.
Daily bed making is using the grabber to push the top sheet & any covers or quilts to the top of the bed.
Throw pillows inplace & rearange by pushing into place.
Don't even try to grab & manuver any thing. You'll modify back & gut muscles & bones.
Top sheet, 2 winter blankets, 6 pillows : 5min tops

In our trailer I just slide the mattress against the bathroom wall and make the head part, then push it up to do the foot part.
I do have an RV Queen and itís a mattress I ordered from RV Mattress.

We do sort of straighten the sheets and blankets.
Just need to ask how deep or the closets? We have a 5th wheel with the queen bed in a west/east slideout, the slide is about 2' deep, and simply pull the bed out a bit.

She likes a clean house, it transfers to the trailer. We have learned in our TT, we slide the mattress down so it hangs over the foot. Then we can tuck the sheets all the way to the top of bed. then slide the mattress back up to the top. Works great. Even I make the bed now when I'm on a solo trip.
