Tireminder TM55

Thinking of getting this for my Coachmen TT. Getting Maxxis 205/75 r14 today.
Camping world is selling this system for $224. They also sell one with a booster for $299. The 507 system is $360.
Do I need a booster?
I couldn't find any reviews on the tireminder. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Less then a hour ago I received my TST 507 system. I purchased it directly through TST and the cost for a 4 sensor unit with 3 yr. warranty was $233.00.

Mine was shipped yesterday, so I'll have it an a few days. You get 10% off if you call in the order vs. using the internet. I had the tireminder system and last year I tossed it in the garbage in MT. It kept losing signals from the sensors, even though I replaced the batteries with fresh batteries. So I got mad and tossed the system. Some people say a booster might have helped, but heck, I have a PU truck and a 12 foot popup; it's not like the tire sensors were at the end of a 50 foot motorhome, and even standing next to the tire, the unit would lose the signal.

I went ahead and bought the TST 507 system.
Yes, much cheaper through them than through Camping World

Received the TST system yesterday; however, the flow-thru sensors will not fit my wheels. (My valve stems are actually in a recessed hole in the wheel.)

But, no problem. Called and left a message, and within ten minutes they called back (and this was about 9:00PM where they are located in GA) and they will exchange for the non-flow-thru sensors.

GREAT customer service! Honestly, I was not expecting them to call me back at 9:00 PM (7:00 PM my time).
