What compact corded or cordless brad/staple do u have?

With a the trim and paneling that comes loose, What carry along nailer and/or stapler does the Jayco travelers aquire? Milwaukee has some nice battery ones but I was actually looking for a brad/stapler comb. But if everyone gets by with the brad nailer only, tell me about the pros and cons please.

When my tt was new I had a few pieces of trim come loose. Actually same one, bathroom door trim. We lived with it during our travels. At home I used a couple small brads and pounded them in the old school way.

Glue is your friend. In addition to the brads.

This is my Brad nailer of choice ( along with a little glue help) it leaves a very small indentation that’s easily covered up. Takes an array of sizes

My porter cable pneumatic brad gun works great with the small 1 gallon air compressor I have had for years. It’s 120 volt, and I have a generator in the Alante.

Too small a job to get out the nailer, just good glue and some small nails are fine for the work I have done on mine. In a couple cases I added screws while the glue was setting up.

I have a Craftsman pancake compressor that came with three staplers/nailers in a kit. It’s got to be 15 years old but works very well.
