Question Recommendation for air compressor


We now own a Cherokee Wolf Pup 16BHS and I would like to purchase an air compressor to keep the tires topped off at 50 psi. I'm looking for something that is lightweight and is reasonably priced. I have done some research but there are so many options out there.

I look forward to your recommendations!

I used a Black and Decker Air Station for years on three different campers and it worked well. Mine has to be at least 20 years old and still works well. I had to go with a larger compressor on my current RV since I am running load range H tires on it with 110 PSI. By the way the Air Station is rated up to 60 PSI at least my old unit is. Good Luck.

Look at the Viair lineup. They're a little more money than most others, but the quality is great.

Check eBay for Puma brand compressors. I've used them for years. Their CFM can't be matched in the portable compressor market.

For 50 PSI tires, the 3 gallon 1/3 HP 100 PSI pancake air compressor at harbor freight is on sale for $39 right now with coupon. It runs on 120 VAC which isn't a problem if you have a generator or in my case, solar, inverter, and almost 700 amps of battery capacity. It used about 400 watts which isn't much.
