I reached out to Dreamcase to learn that their memory foam is 5-inch thick once you have fully assembled your bed.

A concern that has been yet to be addressed by either Tesmat or Dreamcase is when you fold down the seats in the Model 3, there is exposed metal which I worry about bumping into at night. I feel it could be another great add-on, some sort of rubber or cloth piece that would protect your body from harm.

Bjørn Nyland’s Thoughts on Dreamcase

In Bjørn Nyland’s review of the Dreamcase for the Model 3, he does mention that set up is a little clumsy for him by himself. Whereas my experience with the Tesmat being in three strips makes it slightly easier to set up by yourself.

Final Thoughts

These two products are designed for different people and for different needs. The Tesmat fits in the sub-trunk due it being designed in 3-pieces. While the Dreamcast doesn’t fit in the sub-trunk, however, it is constructed in a single mattress that unfolds into your bed. They both do an excellent job in their marketing to really play up the stargazing with each car camping setup and beautiful camping spots!
