Air compressor

Can someone recommend a good portable air compressor to carry with us on trips?

What are you inflating? Pool stuff or airbags, tires, etc..?

I have a Porter-cable pancake compressor. Not the smallest compressor in the world but it works great for tires...especially LT's. I bought a small portable compressor that was supposedly good for tires. Well, that didn't work out too well for me. I couldn't get more than 40lbs. in my Michelins. So now I have this bigger than needed compressor but I don't have to worry about it not doing the job.

Ok. Thank you. That was the one I was leaning towards.

Lots of options, some of which depends on the required air pressure to top off your tires. I use a Slime brand portable 12v compressor. I have the largest that will plug into a cigarette lighter. They make ones that have to be connected right to the battery. I like mine.

What I like I can top off without having 120V ac around

I carry a VIAIR 400P-RV with me. It runs off of one of the batteries in my RAM 2500. It has pleanty of power and comes with two air hoses and built in gage. It easily inflates truck tires and the MAXXIS tires on my 5er to 80psi. Very well made.

I use the Porter-Cable pancake for use at home; it does a good job.

For on the road issues, I use a Viair 88P Portable Air Compressor. Battery powered, fairly light and handles my truck and trailer tires at 80 PSI without struggling too much.
