Yep, the fitted bottom sheet has to get hooked down under those far corners of the heavy mattress.... I was surprised how difficult that is because there is no space between the wall and bed... This thin, sturdy piece of plastic did the trick this time....do you have another way?

Our old MH had twin, side beds. Cindy, my bride, cussed them out for 5 years.

The new MH has a queen "walk around"- we live and learn.

I think the easiest solution for you, as suggested, would be to have a new mattress made of foam rubber and maybe 3" less in width than the present mattress you now have. It would be a lot less cost involved vs buying a new rig.

We have a king size bed in a space for a walk around queen!! Can not do much about the the top coverings but I got "sheet holders" at bed bath and beyond. They look like the old guarders used to hold up nylons. I pull the corners of the fitted sheet toward each other. This keeps it from coming off. And I can use sheets made fir regular size king beds. The rest I do it from top back tucking in as I move toward the foot of the bed

I had one of those corner beds (and never will again!). Ours had a cutoff edge so we could walk by on the one exposed corner so it was considered a "specialty" mattress. What I did was to place the sheet in the middle with the corner toward the bed corner. Then I climbed into the middle on my knees and used a heavy plastic backscratcher to shove down by the corner (I had a big heavy Disney one). The backscratcher had the teeth on the end and I could grasp the mattress with those teeth to lift the corner enough to get my hand in there. Then I would lift and grab both sides of the corner and swing back with my weight to raise it enough to slip on the fitted bottom sheet corner. Then the process began again with another corner. Eventually the backscratcher left a mark on the wall but there was no other way I could get the sheet on that I could figure out. I have never been so glad in my life as when we sold that TT with that bed!

Wow, i'm obviously not alone in trying to find a way to get that bottom sheet on. So far I am so totally pleased with how comfortable our bed is, (which was priority #1 for us)...not going to be looking to replace it, just find easier ways to remake it.
The back scratcher mattress lifter is an interesting approach!
For now, getting the sheet low enough around the mattress (with my cutting board chops from above) and pulling it around the opposite corner (the easier to get to end) seems to pull it into place snugly. No lifting, and a lot less cussing. We'll see how it holds up after a night of rustling around in it

Okay, I found the ultimate answer everyone-
