Our Rockwood came with nitrogen filled tires also. I have my own air compressor at home and will be filling with air. As stated above, spend your money on a good tire pressure gauge and use air. If I take the 5er somewhere to have the tires topped off with nitrogen, I hear they charge around $5.00 per tire. I can't see paying $80.00 for the truck and trailer when I can do it for free myself.

Costco will fill them if you need. Nitrogen Martians pressure much better with temperature changes and does not carry moisture like compressed air. My local ford dealer also used nitrogen and will fill the tires.

Marvin the nitrogen Martian doesn't handle pressure very well. Ask Bugs Bunny...

FYI - air is almost 80% nitrogen already.

I have a air compressor, don't have a nitrogen bottle and regulator so I use good old air.

I used N in my racing bike tires but have my own N set up. I've always just used air for my other tires and they fluctuate pressure with temp do to the moisture in air expansion. I just check my tires before any trip and adjust the pressure as needed. I do use a electronic tire gauge that measures to the 1/2 pound so all my tires have same pressure.

Love the auto spell check "Martians" that came on the iPad. They "maintain" a flair in my posts!

Wonder if helium or laughing gas work any better than nitrogen. Suckers born every minute.
Don't forget to get your windows etched.
Another make easy money scam for dealer profit margins

With nitrogen, your tire pressures will remain more constant, saving you a small amount in fuel and tire-maintenance costs. There will be less moisture inside your tires, meaning less corrosion on your wheels. You will not be able to feel any difference in the ride or handling or braking, unless your tire pressures were seriously out of spec and changing to nitrogen brought them back to the proper numbers.

Best reason is that most people do not check the pressure often at all, thus nitrogen is a good choice. For those that are anal about tire pressure, common compressed air will do.

As for me, the trailer tires came with nitrogen and I have two sources of nitrogen to maintain them that way, so I take advantage of that.

As with anything else, it is all personal choice.
