Bjørn Tests Dreamcase For Tesla Model S – Video

DEC 13 2017 BY MARK KANE 7

In the name of science, Bjørn Nyland tests the Model S … even while sleeping.


DreamCase for Tesla Model S – Camper Mode Activated

In this case, Bjørn reviews the sleeping bag Dreamcase – which is a box with a bed inside , but customized for camping out in the Tesla.

A review such as this is pretty handy if one is interested in the product, as the price of the Dreamcase starts at around €800 (incl. VAT).

Overall, Bjørn’s initial impressions on the Dreamcase are very positive. The design is great, so everything fits well, and the materials are deemed good quality.

With that in mind, the box is heavy (20 kg), and big, but as the Dreamcase consists of a thin mattresses and quilt, any other solution would probably take even more space/weight, and probably would not fit properly in the car.

Whether it’s worth the money? Well, that depends – if you sleep in your Tesla just a couple times, it’s hard to justify the expense. But if you sleep in car a lot (displacing hotel stays), like Bjorn we assume, then it would be worth considering the buy.

I still say it’s insanely overpriced.

Buy a big thick foam rubber pad, custom fit to the space using an electric carving knife, add some bedclothes and a pillow or two.

Done, and hundreds of dollars (or Euros) saved!

I have a relative who actually did this. She takes lots of road trip vacations and slept in her hatchback to avoid motel fees. She spent her nights with her car sitting in Wal*Mart parking lots, because they are open all night, have well-lit parking lots for good security, and they have publicly accessible bathrooms.

You can’t go wrong with Norbert’s Panel Mats:

Get your bedding at Ikea or Target. Both stores sell storage totes. I favor the clear plastic under-bed rolling boxes.

On fishing trips I often sleep in my vehicle. On long trips, I take my wife’s caravan because it’s like a small hotel room with the mid and rear seats stowed.
I also sleep in the drivers seat of my truck. I must say that a well designed seat can be plenty comfortable, even for my old bones.

I can’t wait to have a climate controlled cabin with the engine off though… that’s a seriously cool (or warm) benefit of EVs.

Another Euro point of view ("anyone found my brain ?" version)

Tesla is very lucky to have “Tesla Bjorn” so involved in their products “assessments” as to have a very detailed and fair opinions about their products in a difficult (cold) environment such as Norway . The problem with many Tesla US owners seem to be that they often are Tsla shareholders as well thus would their Tesla literally explode from under their bottoms they would probably find it perfectly acceptable. Thus according to my observations, Europeans Tesla owners often have more balanced opinions so when the emperor’s naked, well, he is naked…saying it straight to his face.
Also Tesla European owners couldn’t care less that Tesla are made in the US, so no favorable bias based on that.

Another Euro point of view

Not that badly written for someone without a brain.

Can people who can afford a Tesla really not afford a hotel room or a tent with a nice sleeping bag and a pad??

I just don’t get this whatsoever. Is this for the person who has to have a Tesla in San Francisco but doesn’t have a place to call home or for the outdoor person who can’t be bothered to pack a tent??

Perhaps some people would rather spend their money on paying for a Tesla or some other really nice car, rather than on a hotel room when they could just as easily avoid the cost.

One thing I’ll never understand is why so many people think the rich don’t care about saving money. Apparently it never occurs to them that the way some people got rich, or at least comfortably well off, is by not wasting money!
