The Viair kit above will do the trick as well.

I have a Viair 420C compressor and a 5 gallon tank mounted to my Frame of my truck so I have air any time I want and it does not take up any more room in the camper.
I also have a set of train horns so if any one gets in my way I give them a blast which is kinda funny cause I usually see them jump in the seat.

IMO you will be disappointed with that model. If you have any kind of fill to do at all, it will take forever. I'd go with at least a 2 gallon and preferably a 4 gallon. You can get a good one for less than $200. CFM is important once your intitial pressure is gone; or you'll have a long wait to fill. You may find other uses besides your tires; like a compressed air "blower" to clean out radiators, lawn mower, etc. You need CFM to do these things.

I have a larger compressor for the garage, I thought he was looking for something to take out on the road, My Bad..
I think he was looking for a compressor to just fill tires on TV and trailer - thats what I got out of his initial post as well

I carry a small bostich compressor that was part of a kit that came with 2 nailers. It's light and relatively compact and made me feel way better than carrying an airtank. Stopped at a gas station once with a low tire and put in 75 cents for their air and it didn't run. I unplugged their POS and plugged in my bostich. Didn't take any time to air up the trailer tire.

I would go with a larger tank. As stated the small tank will not be enough air to fill the TV tires.

Get a compressor your wife will be able to get rid of at at yard sale with the other toys when you pass.

If your just topping off tires, any pancake compressor will do just fine. Even when a tire is really low its probably not going to take more than a 1/2 cf of 55psi air.
BUT!
I started looking for the same thing years ago and came across a twin stage 30 gallon unit for around $300 I think it was. Its in the closed attic of my garage with a regulator on the wall down stairs. Since then I have a 1/2 impact with all the sockets, a 3/8 air ratchet, blow guns, inflator, paint spray gun, etc. I haven't picked up a lug wrench in years and I can rotate the tires on my truck in 15 minutes! It really pays for itself, and as I seem to be getting older for some reason it really saves the back! lol
For the road I have a little piece of crap 12v with a 20' extension wire and a plug hit for nails etc. Works great in a jam.
