I carried a 3 gallon pancake compressor by Porter Cable for a long time. It required 120v, so I could only use it at campsites and stuff (no generator). I recently found it cannot top my 125psi tires up any longer; so I'm upgrading to a 12v Viair 450P.

12v Motor Trend portable,(free with subscription!!) Weighs about 2lb. Will pump to 250 psi but takes all day!!!! I use it for bike tires and inflatables. It takes 1 hour to put 2psi in a 19.5" tire.

Got a Viair and I think 2 or 3 gallon tank installed in tool box with ventilation. Put a QD on the running board and carry a 50' hose that'll reach all truck and trailer tires. Comes in handy for those tires, bike tires, pool toys and other things, plus runs the train horns. Controlled by the factory dash switches.

That's what I got, a Vivair in my toolbox to power my Grover air horns, you know the ones used on fire trucks.....yeah I'm an old firefighter..lol lol ...but sure comes in handy when idiots pull out in front of a moving house...lol lol .. I carry a 50ft air hose which will reach my trailer tires hooked up to the truck. And I have run air power tools too..... Love my Grovers

Gotta love the air horns. I second the idiot comment steelpony. Houston and Atlanta come to mind.
