Air compressor choices?

For those of you that carry an air compressor with you, what do you use to cover all the bases? (Brand, model number)

Hubby is wanting to get one, but isn't quite sure what kind to get. (For tires on TV and RW, Trail Air, bike tires, etc.)

We have a huge one at home and we have to haul out the long hoses to reach the unit. Just trying to be prepared for the road too.

Thanks,

Shelley

I use a Sears Craftsman Model No. 919.15309, a small, 120 Volt compressor with a 1.5 gallon tank which is capable of 150 PSI. I don't think that exact same unit is still available but something similar should work for you.

I have the viair 400p and love it. I can connect to the batteries and reach to the back axle on either side.

I used to carry the craftsman 150 psi around in our previous 5er, but had lots more basement storage in it so now I have the on board compressor for the air bags and asked for an outlet by the rear license plate for my air needs...

Love it. Easily reaches the higher pressures needed for our G rated camper tires.

That is exactly what my "Craftsman bought at Kmart" compressor looks like even down to the accessories with the little pocket on the back,
BUT, mine's craftsman red color

We have a Porter Wagner 3 gal 150 psi pancake compress. We got it at Home Depot for $99.00. It works great and airs up out tire in short order.

I sincerely hope we haven't found someone guilty of private labeling.
