6 Budget Dreamcase Alternatives in 2022

DreamCase car beds are soft, comfortable, and provide an easy way to rest on long travels, but they can be expensive. If you’re looking for a quality mattress to help you relax during your trip but need something more affordable, I’ve got your back. 

Let’s look at six different options as well as each option’s specs, pricing, and quality, so you can choose one with the optimal quality and a design that suits your vehicle. 

1. FB Sport Car Travel Inflatable Air Bed

The FB Sport car air bed is a decent alternative to the DreamCase beds. It doubles up as a sofa and can be used both in and out of the car. If you’re looking for a multipurpose car mattress, the FB Sport mattress is perfect.

The only downside to this car mattress is that it will deflate with constant use. It’s also tiring to inflate it with the hand pump.

However, it’s still a viable option for the price range to be used as a car mattress, camping bed, or even at home.

This car mattress is easy to inflate and adjust in most vehicles. While different color mattresses may have different pricing, the range is usually between $20-$35, making it an affordable option.

2. HAITRAL Portable Car Air Bed

With its lightweight and waterproof design, there’s no reason you won’t love this car mattress. 

The Hairtral mattress is made of high-quality PVC material and comes with two pillows and an air pump. 

It spans more than your average car mattress, so it can double as a bed as well. Plus, it’s more reliable than many other car air beds and can also be used in larger vehicles. 

The only downside is that it may not fit many smaller cars. Also, the PVC material may puncture easily, making it unreliable for outdoor use.

At around $30, it’s still a budget-friendly option, and the superior design quality justifies the slightly higher price.

3. Goldhik Mobile Cushion Air Bed

With its double side brush fabric, the Goldhik bed is one of the more durable car mattresses in the market. The brushed fabric also makes it more comfortable, and it feels more like a real bed. 

I’ve tried many regular inflatable beds, but they usually have an uncomfortable material. This bed solves this issue quite impressively. 

What makes this bed unique is that it comes in a large size and will easily fit in both a small car and SUV. It also has a load-bearing capacity of 300kg (661 lbs) and can easily handle two people. 

The unique design allows this bed to be divided into two parts. You can fold it for a smaller vehicle or use it at full capacity in a larger SUV. 

You also won’t have to worry about carrying it around when traveling. It doubles up as a camping bed and can easily be folded into your travel backpack.

The only downside of this car mattress is the price. It’s still a budget option and more affordable than the DreamCase, but a bit more expensive than many of the other beds on this list.

4. Thera Health Folding Mattress

The Thera Health folding mattress is a suitable alternative to more expensive specialized car mattresses. It can be used as a multipurpose mattress, and the foldable design means you can use it as a floor mattress. 

What’s unique about this mattress is the quality material. Unlike many inflatable car mattresses on this list, the Thera Health mattress is made with high-quality foam with 4-inch (10.16 cm) thickness.

The foam comes with a guarantee, and you don’t have to inflate it every time. Simply unfold it, place it in your car, and you have a complete sleeping area.

It’s also non-toxic, breathable and Certipur-US certified, making it one of the safer options available. So, if you’re looking for a durable car mattress that won’t deflate or get damaged easily, this foam mattress is a great option.

The only downside to it, in my opinion, is that it isn’t as lightweight as many of the inflatable mattresses. That’s why it’s unsuitable if you want to take camping or hiking trips. However, this shouldn’t be a problem if you use it as a car mattress.

5. Onirii Inflatable Car Air Mattress Bed

If you’re looking for the best-specialized car mattress for your next trip, this is one of the best options to choose from. 

Made from high-quality PVC material with a padded base, it strikes the perfect balance between quality and comfort. However, the unique design and customization make this car mattress stand out. 

It fits most cars, and you can inflate it to different levels. It also doesn’t take too long to inflate and comes with a hand pump if you buy it from Amazon

In the end, the only downside to this car mattress is that it’s still an inflatable model and prone to punctures. However, considering the rest of its features and the quality material, it’s one of the best budget alternatives to DreamCase.

You also get a child head guard and neck pillows for additional comfort. Best of all, the repairing pad can help you repair any punctures in the bed. So, if you puncture the bed (we all make mistakes from time to time), you won’t have to sleep on the car seat!

6. QDH SUV Air Mattress

The QDH SUV Air Mattress is made for larger vehicles but is still one of the best alternatives to DreamCase. The wavy design allows for more comfort and durability, and the thick flocking is difficult to puncture. 

What makes this bed unique is the design’s simplicity. Unlike other specialized car beds that will only fit certain car models, you can use this bed in any vehicle. 

Although it’s listed as an SUV mattress, you can modify it in many ways to adjust to all types of vehicles. You can inflate all three parts for larger cars or choose to inflate fewer parts- depending on the size of your car. While it may not look sophisticated, the design is really creative as it gives you a lot of freedom.

FB Sport Inflatable Air Bed$13-$55
HAITRAL Portable Car Air Bed $25-$30
Goldhik Mobile Cushion Air Bed$20-$60
Thera Health Folding Mattress$110+
Onirii Inflatable Air Mattress Bed$20-$70
QDH SUV Air Mattress$25+

As you can see, inflatable mattresses are much cheaper than foam care mattresses.

However, they come with a catch. Foam mattresses like the Thera Health Folding mattress comes with a few years’ warranty, which makes them more cost-effective in the long run.

Also, you won’t have to worry about your car mattress getting damaged by sharp objects.

In the end, it’s a choice between convenience and quality. If you’re only going to be using the mattress in your car, then a foam mattress may be a better choice for you.

However, if you’re going to use it for camping, carrying a heavy foam mattress isn’t really an option.
