TPMS in vehicle

I don't know if this has ever been discussed before, if so sorry. We have tire pressure monitoring systems in most vehicles these days, has anyone ever looked into putting sensors from the vehicle manufacturer on the trailer so they could be monitored with the vehicles system. May be over taxing my brain here but it seems like it should work.

Did a little looking, s set of 4 OEM VW Touaeg TPMS is around $280 and range of about 100'. Besides the cost of almost getting close to purchasing a complete system, questions on are they preset to a set presure, can the reciever handle more then 4 sensors? think would be better off just buying a TPMS made for RVs.

That would be a great idea if Tow Vehicle manufacturers would prep their system for this but I think right now the systems can only handle 4 tires. I did a quick search several weeks ago when I decided to get a monitor system and couldn't find anything. Plus the ones on most vehicles I read about do not do temperature. An important part of monitoring.

Will wait if anyone else has looked into this.

I drive a dually and wasn't able to get TPMS as well. I ordered a TST 507 today.
Don't think the automakers really research what customers need very well. Furnished GPS is almost worthless. Ski resorts listed as POI! Can't imagine a ski resort being a popular destination for a dually. I think nearby RV parks would be more useful IMO. Rant over.
