Ultimate sleeping luxury for your base camp or car camping.

Therm-a-Rest claims the three-inch thick DreamTime sleeping pad is the most luxurious camping mattress ever made, and we happily agree. When you never carry your mattress more than the distance from your car to the tent, there's no reason to worry about weight—and every reason to make your base camp or car camping trip as comfortable as possible. A cushy foam pillow-top adds decadent comfort, while a removable stretch-fleece lining on top makes the DreamTime plush to the touch. Add in the most-durable nonslip bottom ever, and you've got a super warm, super comfortable sleeping pad that'll last the years. Grab an extra DreamTime for your partner—the included pad connectors will easily turn two mattresses into a queen-size camp bed. Pair it up with a Camp & Comfort Stuff Sack for protection and portability.

Just Buy It!!!

This is the most amazing sleeping pad, best night of sleep while camping! It's so comfortable, rolls up pretty small and is lightweight. Just buy it, you won't regret it!

Will it fit in luggage for a plane ride?...

Will it fit in luggage for a plane ride? Help!
My in laws have the hardest beds imaginable... and always want us to stay with them when we visit.
Will this fit in my luggage for an international plane ride? After reading some posts, I am afraid that once inflated that I wont be able to deflate to take it home again after sleeping on it a week.
does it have ties or strech straps to roll it? what am I dealing with here ?
During our last trip we barrowed someone's t-a-r pad... (a thin one) and it just was not enough cushion for me and my back)
Thank you in advance for your advice.

I think that you would have a hard time getting it to fit in your carry on bag. The Luxury Map might be a better choice. Here is a pic of my dreamtime crushed down about as far as it could go. The sunglasses are for scale.

It would definitely offer you significant R-Value, or insulation, between you and the ground. I think you would be amazed at the difference between sleeping on this pad vs. an air-only pad or a tarp. In fact, this is the most insulative self-inflatable pad you can buy! You won't even notice the cold ground with this pad. It's also incredibly comfortable. If comfort and warmth are your main needs (vs. pack size and weight), then this is the best pad available.

However, if you are planning on packing it in, the size and weight is overwhelming. The best all-around winter pad made by Cascade Designs is the Trail Pro. It's 2 inches thick, packs very small, is lightweight (2lbs), and has an R-Value around 5. This is more than adequate, using a properly rated sleeping bag, to keep you warm in the winter.

Another pad that may work that isn't so bulky (and will save you money) is the Thermarest Luxury Map. Very comfortable and very warm.

The best ultralight self-inflatable pad is the Thermarest Prolite Plus. This will require a warmer sleeping bag, but is adequate for winter use. I've used it many times and have slept very well in a tent in sub 0 temps.

Luxury Car Camping

This pad is almost funny how comfortable it is! If you want to drive to a campground through up your 4-6 person tent and have a pillow fight...this is the mattress pad that will give you the bouncy bounce you need. I took two of the XL's thinking they would fit in my Big Anges Emerald Mtn 2 person tent (
-that was just a almost covered the entire floor, the other had to curve up the side of the tent to avoid overlapping discomfort. Not for the packing trek but awesome for the family outing, mallo roasting, pillow fights...enjoy!

Dream Time Sleeping Pad

I let my boyfriend's mom use this pad for a weekend car camping trip. Her thoughts: "It felt like I was sleeping on a regular bed at home!" Obviously, she was stoked on it and now wants to get one of her own.

Kinda almost feel guilty...

...when sleeping with this pad. The foam is not as luxurious as described, but it does get the job done. This is the perfect car camping pad, especially if you can set up a tent on grass. Even on stony soil, slept soundly with little discomfort. I am a big guy, and my hips don't like hard sleeping surfaces, but I woke up with little complaint and after a long day of hiking, looked forward to retiring.

I got the pleasure of sleeping on the Therm-a-Rest Dream Time pad one evening while car camping ... and oh my word, I don't think I had ever had such a great night's rest while in the outdoors before! It is pretty bulky and not the lightest thing, but its not like you are tackling Everest with this thing on your back. If you want the comfort of a 5-star hotel while out bonding with Mother Nature, then this pad is for you!

More cushion for the....good night sleep

This the best thing for car camping or base camping next to a futon mattress(which fits in the back of my xterra very nicely) I usually don't sleep well when out camping because my back gets stiff and sore from the wimpy foam pads but not this time. I slept great and my back thanked me. It's definetly not one you will be packing in on long trips but for the short close to the car trips it's worth it.

Therm-a-Rest Dream Time Sleeping Pad

While these are perfectly functional, it is $200 for a mattress that could be replaced by $20 of foam. They weigh 8lbs and roll up to about 36" long by 12" in diameter. Unless you are on horse or car, your aren't taking these far. that said, I enjoyed borrowing these and they helped me stay toasty warm and comfortable. Good but not worth it. Buy a small thermarest and a foam pad for the cold,luxury nights.

Forget your posturepedic

Wow, this thing is so frickin' comfortable. I mean, really, it's great. Weighs a ton, but if you have friends sleep over, or sleep over at friends houses a lot, or car camp, or sleep in your car, or like to sleep under your desk at get the idea. It's really comfortable.

Lovely Slumber

The Dreamtime XL may be a little bulky, but it is the next best thing to carrying your queen size mattress with you on your car camping trip. I loved the pad. It really is a very comfortable material to lay on and couldn't have felt a rock underneath me even if there was one.

Therm-a-Rest Dreamtime XL

Luxury camping indeed, concubines not included. Perfect for the back of the truck or on someone's floor. It has the pack size of about 80L so don't try bringing it beyond a parking lot unless you have a mule.
Inflates fast and makes other's with you jealous even faster. Use it for your old bones or gift one to your girl to keep your camping trip 30% happier for the both of you.

Therm-a-Rest Dream Time-Wow!

All the rave reviews are true! I've used my new pad on three trips now, and I can't say enough good things. The ultimate luxury pad for the car camper. Incredibly comfortable, inflates easily, and rolls up to a reasonable size. Worth every penny! I no longer worry about getting a good night's sleep while camping.

Therm-a-Rest Dream Time = YES!

I purchased this pad with the hopes that it would be the most comfortable sleeping pad I've ever owned. Oh baby I couldn't have made a better decision. The pad system is a little pricey at $200 but it is a very slick system. It rolls up to a fine size for car camping and inflates with relative ease. What makes this pad so special is when you lie down for the night. It is soooooo comfortable. I'm a side sleeper and at 200lbs I find that with most pads my hip bone ends up against the hard ground. Not with the Dream Time! I slept on rocky ground and it was super plush. A great buy for ulitmate comfort!

How do you clean one after a week of camping??

It says the fleece is removable, so probably just a light machine or hand wash, and as for the pad itself, just soap and water should do fine.

Therm-a-Rest Dream Time Sleeping Pad

The Therm-a-Rest Dream Time Sleeping Pad is a great pad if you plan on doing any car camping or when weight/size isn't an issue. The comfort is hard to beat. In fact, my boyfriend's parents recently stayed with us and were very disconcerted to see that we were making them sleep on two of these babies strapped together. They wanted us to go to Wal-Mart to get them an air mattress...but we urged them to give it a try. After one night, they were convinced! That's how comfortable these are! They spent an entire week on them. They're super durable, too.
