Here is a link to the compressor I use, although when I purchased it, it was red and badged as a Craftsman. The one you identified is what craftsman is now OEMing in place of the one I have.

This compressor is nice size, very portable, and can easily inflate to 100 psi in a reasonable time -- a couple of minutes if you the tire was completely empty. I would buy it again in a heart beat.

Porter-Cable CMB15 0.8 HP 1.5 Gallon Oil-Free Fully Shrouded Hand Carry Compressor Kit

Is that 12V?

If on the road and home for just vehicles then I would go with a 12V compressor like this Amazon.com: Q Industries MV50 SuperFlow High-Volume 12-Volt Air Compressor: Automotive
for $50.00 or so dollars.

If for home use then I would suggest a Porter Cable pancake. They get to 130 PSI without issue and do a nice job.

I have both above and use the 12V on the road mostly, but the pancake does a nice job and can keep up decently.

The plug in 12V type can overheat and melt the plug so go with aligator clip style if you want that type.
For the road mostly. I'd like to know if my tires are low I can just pull into a parking lot and top off my tires. This is my first class A and I don't want to be in a situation where I need to squeeze to get to an air hose, or find one for that matter. T
The one I have struggles to maintain 100 psi, let alone output 100psi.

Bought the same one and to pump up my tires to 80 psi really took way to long. Each tire on our trailer was down 20 psi after sitting and it took about 30 minutes to fill each tire. The truck tire were down 10 psi and it took about 15 minutes per tire. Maybe I had a bad compressor.

I have a porter cable pancake and it works well and isn't that heavy ... I haven't tried it using a 12volt to 110 converter but I wouldn't think it would need to big of one to run it ... That way you could use on the road or at the campsite or home

I have a similar, 1 gallon tank, one that works great. TV tires, camper tires and any inflatables that we use while camping.
