5 Extremely Comfy Tesla Model 3 Bed Kits to Consider (Reviewed)

If you camp regularly and want the best night’s sleep you could possibly have in your Tesla, you’re going to want a Tesla Model 3 bed kit.

I went through 10+ YouTube videos and dozens of Facebook group posts and forum threads (I can’t even count how many) looking for the best ones available today.

There were a few obvious no-no’s — as well as some clear, definitive winners.

We’ll discuss each widely recommended bed kit in extreme detail below, including Tesla owners’ complaints, praises, and unpleasant surprises.

Read on for all the details.

Best Tesla Model 3 Bed Kit Overall: Tesmat

Tesmat has built its entire brand based on beautiful, comfortable Tesla mattresses.

As seen in the video above, the product includes three folding mats that unfold to form a twin-sized mattress that fits the Model 3 perfectly.

Individual mats won’t split up while you sleep — Tesmat intelligently uses velcro to keep each mat in place!

To make things even better, these mats can be compressed into a carrying bag that fits in the sub-trunk area.

That way, you and your family have enough space for a comfortable sleep plus all your cargo.

If you want a practical, comfortable Tesla Model 3 bed kit to sleep like a baby when camping, Tesmat is the way to go.

I found no major Tesla owners’ complaints about this product, though it seems that customer service isn’t the best.

Customers have to wait a long time for delivery (as much as 6-7 weeks) and, understandably so, people reach out to support for status updates… to no avail.

“I did not get emails within a couple of weeks, I sent a webmail through Tesmat.com asking for a status report. No answer. I tried again a few days later. Same result. I called the phone number on the website. Voicemail. I left a message. I understand that some products might be moving more slowly now, but I prefer that companies with my money not ignore me.”

Tom Trigg

If you have a camping trip planned for the next 2 months, I’d recommend you buy from another brand.

If not, consider waiting — customers are happy and confirm the product quality when they finally receive their order.

Hear what Cameron from The Tech of Tech YouTube channel has to say about Tesmat:

Jump to 4:29 where he walks you through his setup process. Or head over to 8:44 for his thoughts about Tesmat after 4 nights of sleep.

The mats are perfectly sized so as you lay down on them, they compress into one another rather than moving away.

And as an added bonus, the carrying case serves as insulated storage — so you can keep your favorite beverages cool.

Given the hundreds of satisfied customers, Tesmat is THE first Tesla Model 3 bed kit to have on your list of considerations.

Runner-Up Tesla Model 3 Bed Kit: TesCamp

Runner-Up Tesla Model 3 Bed Kit: TesCamp

Many would argue TesCamp is identical to Tesmat — and I’d agree… to some extent.

But TesCamp, though not so popular in the Tesla community, has a few things going for it.

From the looks, feel, and even price point, there doesn’t seem to be a great deal of difference between TesCamp and Tesmat.

However, here are some of the specific advantages TesCamp has over the Tesmat:

  • The Tescamp is available on Amazon — so delivery time will be days, not weeks.
  • The latest TesCamp mattress is a bit thicker (~2.6” vs 2”). This makes it more suitable for heavier folks or those with joint pain.
  • Though a bit bigger, the TesCamp case matches Model 3’s sub-trunk shape, thus you’ll not be hearing “thud” noises while taking a sharp turn.
  • TesCamp’s bed kit can be stored both in the trunk and frunk, unlike other bed kits.

Also, the curve around the wheel arches allows for a wider mattress and ensures pads don’t move — which is a design aspect Tesmat didn’t take into account.

Similar to Tesmat, however, three separate mats need to be put together to form one big mattress.

To counter the wiggle movements in the pads, velcro strips are embedded on each side.

And differences in comfort between the TesCamp and Tesmat are negligible based on Tesla owners’ comments.

Evan Michiels YouTube channel covered the newest version of the TesCamp in a recent 4-minute video:

If you need a mattress for your Tesla soon, TesCamp becomes the obvious choice.

With a car bed that fits in the sub-trunk or frunk, you’ll have plenty of space for your backpack, food items, and all your camping goodies.

Pros:

Near clone of the more popular Tesmat.

Cons:

❌ The old version got a 3.5 rating on comfort level. The newest version has proven more comfortable, though.
❌ Only available for Model 3 & Y. Doesn’t fit Model S or X.

Premium Pick: Dreamcase

Dreamcase offers a whole Tesla camper kit for you to have the closest thing to a home bed in your car.

Described as soft yet supporting memory foam, their multi-layer mattress provides an experience in a league of its own. 

The car duvet and pillows their bundle includes are comfortable — but if you’re used to sleeping on thick pillows, I’d recommend you to bring one from your home.

Bjorn Nyland, a renowned YouTuber in the Tesla community, talks us through his thoughts and impressions of the Dreamcase Tesla Model 3 bed kit:

Jump over to 6:30 for his first impressions. Skip to 13:42 to see an interesting trick the Dreamcase has… Ignore Bjorn’s underwear, though.

One of the challenges with Dreamcase is their size — the thicker and more premium material doesn’t fold up like Tesmat and TesCamp does.

You’re left with a carrying case that takes much more cargo area from your trunk.

Positioned against the backseat, however, it’s surprising how much space is left for other backpacks and hags.

“Wow! That takes up less space than I thought.” Credit to outdoors.

Dreamcase is available for the whole Tesla lineup but the typical concern is price.

Expect to pay anywhere between $700 to $900 if you shop from Dreamcase — that includes additional shipping costs since the company is based in Europe.

A Model 3 owner from the Tesla Motors Club admits:

“ I like a solution that is simple, good-looking, and well-crafted. Dreamcase fits the bill for me. I don’t mind paying the dough.”

If you want a quality product from a seller with great attention to detail and craftsmanship (rather than a Chinese reseller), this is the Tesla Model 3 bed kit to explore further.

Notable Mentions

Better Habitat

If you’re looking for a cheaper bed kit for your Tesla Model 3, you can’t go wrong with a Better Habitat Mattress.

After reading through many forum threads, I found many people talking about this bed kit and how it fitted the bill.

It includes a comfortable memory foam mattress that can be set in a few seconds.

Unclip, roll out, and you’re all set.

Credit to Tesla Joy

Tesla Joy explores the impact of Camp mode (and having the climate control on all night) in case you’re curious about the details:

The mattress also includes a removable waterproof sheet that can survive all the slops you throw at it.

It has a 4.6 out of 5 stars overall rating with 1,200+ total reviews.

Another reason that compelled me to put Better Habitat on my list is the amount of attention it’s getting on Amazon.

Compared to the typical tents (or air mattresses that need to be constantly inflated and deflated), sleeping in a Better Habitat seems to be a far better option.

Milliard Tri-Folding Bed Kit Twin XL

This is another affordable bed kit that, despite being a universal product, has the perfect dimensions to fit your Tesla Model 3.

With 8,000+ reviews on Amazon with an overall rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars, it’s a long-time favorite for many people.

Is it comfortable? I haven’t heard any complaints from its users.

Hear what Paul from the Tesla Canuck YouTube channel has to say about this mattress:

Considering Paul’s positive opinions about this mattress and the trust shown by the Tesla community, most Model 3 owners will be happy with this universal bed kit.

If you’re on the fence about it, this Model 3 camping thread may inspire you to pull the trigger.

A word of caution: you’ll see this mattress available in different sizes on Amazon. Choose the Twin XL size mattress for your Model 3. Bigger sizes simply won’t fit.

Other Products to Consider

Privacy Screen – Tesmat

Tesla Model 3 bed kit - Privacy Screen - Tesmat

Imagine some weirdo peeking inside your car while you sleep unaware.

Sounds creepy, right?

That’s why a privacy screen is a must-have accessory if you want to keep the peering eyes away.

Tesmat is one of the few companies that sells privacy screens for Tesla owners — and no surprise, they’re a great complement to the mattresses.

It’s easy to set up and blocks the view from all 4 windows — but leaves the roof uncovered for you to gaze at the stars as you lay down in bed.

It’s also very lightweight and can be stored easily inside the trunk, frunk, or sub-trunk.

Tesmat has a comprehensive installation video you can go through to understand how the setup works:

There aren’t many privacy screens for your Model 3 in the market.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive one that does the job, give this one a shot.

Frequent Buyer Concerns

1. Is it safe to sleep a whole night inside an electric car?

Absolutely. 

Electric vehicles and all of their systems (include the HVAC system) run without emitting any toxic gases or emissions. 

Sleeping a whole night inside your Tesla during a camping trip shouldn’t be a problem — neither in terms of health concerns nor in terms of noise complaints.

2. Can you sleep in a Tesla Model 3 overnight?

Of course!

In fact, Tesla Model 3 has a built-in camp mode that enables you to have a comfortable overnight sleep in your car.

Bjorn Nyland from YouTube actually tried it with an outside temperature of -8 °C.

See how his experience went:

3. Will camp mode drain my battery — and how much?

Yes, it’ll drain your battery but not as much as you think.

Under normal weather conditions, you can expect your Model 3 to consume 7-10% of the battery during one whole night.

However, in harsh weather conditions, consumption can double — especially if you ever need the heater (and you have a pre-2020 model, not equipped with a heat pump).

Our Tesla Model 3 Bed Kit of Choice

Ultimately, Tesmat offers incredible quality at a very affordable price. 

Even the bundle that includes the privacy screen fits most budgets.

I was personally intrigued by the engineering that went into developing the product.

Quite a simple yet smart design to store all the pieces into a very small box.

Considering all the praises the Tesla community has given the product, I’d encourage you to check out their website for more details — and see if the product fits your needs.

In any case, you’ll be able to fully rest for your next adventure on any of the mattresses included in this list.
