I have a Superflow MV 50. Got it from Just looked at and it's there also. I also carry a 110 volt compressor in the 5er.

It might be a little pricey...but it works very well, is compact, quiet and very easy to use!

Only thing I wish it had was a longer set of cables for hooking it to the battery. I figure I can extend its reach though using my jumper cables if need be. I also got a second air hose (25 ft extension) so that I can reach the RV tires without unhooking if needed...but it can also be hooked to the RV battery as another method to extend the reach.
I have one it works great.

I have a Black and Decker AS1500 cordless compressor and inflator, $60 with free shipping from amazon. It says on the box that it's good for 120psi. The most I us it for is 50psi for my bicycle tires. You can dial in the desired psi, and it will stop automatically at that pressure.

12v = frustration

I finally gave up on the 12v air compressors. I bought a pancake at Harbor Freight. I always carry my generator anyway... no more frustrations!

Has anyone used the Jumpstart which has a built in compressor that runs up to 150 psi? I notice both Costco and Sam's carries the unit for $60. Unit had a fairly heavy weighty battery in it. Guessing a lawn tractor or motorcycle battery.

Yeah, plan on sitting a long time to wait for them to get to pressure...

We have a blue hawk 2 gallon 120v one. I also have given up on the 12v ones. I generally carry a geni with me or will have 120 when I get to the campground.

I bought the Viair 450P. Yes, it's a bit pricy at over $200, but it's built like a tank, all metal, stainless on the outside, sits on a diamond pattern vibration pad, comes with a 35' hose and a 12' DC power cord, large pressure gage, squeeze-trigger nozzle, all in a rugged canvas zippered bag. Pressures up to 150 psi. If you are serious, this blows away the pun intended.

I went an opposite direction. Sometime I travel with genny, sometimes not. Ran a 1000w inverter under the backseat of the crew cab and ran 4 ga to it. Bought 120v craftsman for about 80$ 6 amps 1.75 cfm. Doesn't take too long to pump up my d rated tires from 40 to 60 at all. Maybe 90 seconds each. To get to rv tired I just pull out extension cord out of trailer. I am about to purchase 1/2 electric impact from harbor freight and leave my cordless impact at home so I don't have to worry if I have a charged battery or not. Inverter powers my metro vac (4hp) well also.

I didn't look extremely long for a 12v because of low air volume. Did pick up a economically challanged unit for when it comes time to blow water out of lines.
