Something like below? Not tested, since we are still in "is this
what we want" phase.
Returning the length of dst/-EOVERFLOW is a bit inconvenient, because
"the length" forces us to have size_t return, which is unsigned.

This one returns a number of non-NULL bytes, which were copied
to dst, or 0.

size_t strcpy_trim(char *dst, size_t dstsz, const char *src, size_t srcsz)
{
	const char *end;
	size_t ret = 0;
	size_t len = 0;

	if (!dstsz || !srcsz)
		goto out;

	end = src + srcsz - 1;
	while (end >= src && isspace(*end))
		end--;
	end++;
	while (src < end && isspace(*src))
		src++;
	len = (src >= end) ? 0 : end - src;
	if (!len)
		goto out;

	ret = len;
	if (len >= dstsz)
		len = dstsz - 1;
	memcpy(dst, src, len);
out:
	dst[len] = '\0';
	return ret == len ? ret : -EOVERFLOW;
}
