Even before owning my Model 3 the stories of people Tesla camping in their Model S sedans made complete sense. It’s the ultimate HVAC tent.
As luck would have it I came across the Tesmat the night the inventor announced its debut. After watching the videos and visiting the website I was sold. The Tesmat is an ingenious blending of form and function.
The killer feature is how small the mattress becomes when compressed into its 22'' x 14'' x 10'' soft case. The three pieces that form the area where your head rests have wood pieces at the bottom of the foam. They serve two purposes: extend the useable space over the well between the front and back seat and make it easy to compress the foam pieces straight down into the carrying case.
The mattress pieces are held down in the carrying case by a strap with a clever magnetic closure. The materials all feel first rate.
Is the Tesmat going to be as comfortable as my memory foam bed? Of course not. Is the Tesmat going to make for a comfortable night of sleeping? Yes, but be realistic. There has to be a tradeoff between comfort and size.
The ability to set up (and put away) the Tesmat in a matter of minutes, coupled with its small footprint, opens a new world of long-distance travel in a Tesla.
If camping in a Tesla Model 3 is your thing, the Tesmat is an absolute steal. After using the Tesmat 3 or 4 times and skipping a hotel you’ve already paid for it. A true no-brainer purchase if you’re a Telsa camper.
The tesmat is my favorite accessory for my model 3 that I've purchased. I'm extremely impressed with the quality and how comfortable it is. For the price and how easily it sets up and packs away, every model 3 owner should have one of these. I used it to nap in my car during my lunch break today and it was a total game changer. I wish it included a pillow though
arrived today in germany, just 3 day before a 600mi road trip to spain. cannot wait to test it with my wife. in winter conditions it takes some time for the volume to fully unfold, but then it is better than sleeping in a tent! what a great idea!!! reinvests itself after 3 hotel nights saved....
Because of Corona, I couldn´t test the equipment really well yet, but the support of George is amazing and great in any aspect !!!
I received the product today after pre-ordering it a few months ago. I just want to say thank you to the Creator and the alternative for this would be the DreamCase which is, in my opinion, unreasonably priced. The setup was easy. I didn't test the fit in the car, however, it looked like it would fit inside the Model 3 snugglly. Can't wait to use it for our road trip!!
Could been more clear what end of to put forward/backward, but really nice thing! And quickly delivered!
I saw this product online and just had to have it, here's my thoughts on the entire process from ordering to installing it in my car:
- Good shipment tracking
- Plastic smell was not so bad as anticipated
- Heavy smell from the sheets, solution: Sheets needed a wash before use (obvious to some)
- Privacy screen could have come with a better instruction manual. Getting those suction cups in place took some force. Also assembled it the wrong way at first, making it really short in the back. Maybe an improvement would be to add to the bag (which is attached to the screen itself) a text saying: "Front" or something.
- Tip: Make a "Sleep" profile for the car, to easily be able to fit the mattress.
More comfortable than expected. The Tesmat including the carrying case also fits into the frunk if needed.
This company listens to feedback from its customers. They are very responsive to doing the right thing with any order issues and react in a timely way. Our family and I look forward to using TesMat in many trips to come...
Tesmat just arrived and my wife promptly took a nap in her model 3. She would offer a 5*****
review. The design, comfort and ease of use are remarkable and reflect a great deal of design and engineering prowess. I am strongly recommending Tesmat to friends with Teslas. My only ask is that you start now to make something spectacular for the CyberTruck!
I love camping but packing/unpacking the tent, sleeping pads and bags are an inconvenience. The Tesmat fits in the trunk perfectly and is pretty comfortable for what it is. I lied down for an hour and can't wait to take it for a real spin on an overnight camping trip. There are a lot of well thought, design details that make it better than just throwing a camping pad in the trunk. When packed in the storage case, it fits perfectly in the sub-trunk with room to spare for a pillow and sheets. Packing it up is easier than a self inflating camping mattress due to the ease of decompression and compression strap. The wooden bases on the top pieces allow for support over the rear seat headrests. The foam is thick enough to feel comfortable but not so thick that it intrudes into the rear parcel shelf clearance (be careful when you bend your knee!). With two people (myself at 5'10" and spouse at 5'2") space is tight but not uncomfortable. I mean it's the trunk of a mid sized sedan, not an RV, or even a model S so set your expectations accordingly.
Overall I'm satisfied with the purchase and can't wait to try it out on a full trip soon.
able to fit in the sub trunk is wayyyy more useful than any other solution on the market right now.
I pre-ordered this product and was anticipating its arrival for a long time. You can get a comfortable sleep in the Model 3 without taking up any trunk space as this fits underneath the trunk. Because it doesn’t take up any trunk space, I carry this with me everyday. Whenever I need to take a rest or sleep, I can sleep in my car anytime. With a bit of effort, I could create a comfortable bed. One suggestion is if all the mats had wooden boards I think it might be even better
I've been looking for a affordable bed or matress for my model 3. The cushions have enough depth to provide support even when laying on your sides. I really like the custom design, makes storing it a breeze. I also like the side of the carrying case, allows you to have room on the left or right of the lower trunk to store a pillow. Magnetic clasp is a nice touch!
As for feedback,
If there was a symbol or maybe a indicator on the cushions that have the hard back support, it would help make recompressing them for storage much more straight forward.
(Since they need to be on the top and bottom of the stack.)
Would be great if the strap was somehow attached to one of the hard sided cushions, to prevent loosing it while camping.
LOVE this mat - you won’t regret it. You can also get $20 off your purchase using promo code TESLA!
Since the Tesmat was on backorder, and I wanted to maximize my storage space, I ordered the privacy screen. It went up very easily, just as the instructional video showed. My picture shows it set up and my tesla 3 in camp mode. As far as a pad was concerned, I opted for a Exped Synmat Hyperlite Double Sleeping Pad, which required me to move both seats forward, but the extreme length and width of the pad made it easy to support pillows, plus it is comfortable, compact and well insulated. The privacy screen was easy to stuff back in its compact pouch, a very good investment.
I had slept on a thin air mattress in the car before and I can't believe I ever slept in the car without the TESMAT mattress. Easy to pack and unpack, the carrying case doubling as a cooler is great and holds a lot! Comfortable sleep!
The mattress is much better than the inflatable camping mattress that I was using. The screen is perfect for privacy. I’m sleeping outside of the hospital when on call, instead of the call room that I must rely on others to keep clean.
The Tesmat Mattress+Carrying Case is a perfect addition in making your Tesla Model 3 even more valuable, efficient and fun! Perfect for those long road trips or car camping. It is very comfortable and I'm thrilled I bought it. The wood boards make a huge difference+gives someone taller to have more leg room. The carrying case makes everything neat and tidy. I am a single 62 yr old woman and I was able to compress mattress back into the case by kneeling on top of it with one knee. Get the Privacy Screen too...easy instructions in how to put together. THANK YOU, TESMAT TEAM for making such innovative products for our Model 3's!
I recommend to put it together once (before using on roadtrip) so you know how to do it easily. For my road trip...I had it all ready as a bed and kept it that way. Didn't need to put it away. Nice to take a nap in back while at charging station!

Yeah!!! Yeah!!! STANDING OVATION. Why stop at 5 Stars. Make it 10, for god's sake!!! The sheets arte still in the plastic. I have not had a chance to "go camping" with them....there's a deadly global pandemic racing around the world...you must not have heard. These reviews from EVERYBODY and EVERYTHING are ridiculous and stupid. So put down whatever rating you want. It always has to be FABULOUS, INCREDIBLY BRILLIANT, etc. Now, Go Away
