Yup - Rolling around is pretty much the method I use for my 3 wall bed (aka capitan's bed). I'm short and the bed is a bit high since I replaced the puppy pad with a real mattress. Anyway I will slide the mattress forward towards me so I can tuck in the back side (I usually climb on top and tuck it in before sliding the mattress back in place and tucking in the rest. There is a cubby on the third wall so I can cheat tucking in the feet section.
It does get easier in time...maybe because we learned to live with it as it is.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
