I think this type would suit you....might be noisy but will do the type of use you describe.

Amazon.com: Pro-Force VPF1080318 3-Gallon Oil Free Air Compressor with Kit: Power & Hand Tools

The PORTER-CABLE C2002-WK Oil-Free UMC Pancake Compressor is what I use when at home, but would work on the road if you have a bigger basement and a generator or shore power.

I carry a small pancake compressor from Harbor Freight with me. It has done everything I needed it to do so far. Think I paid $35-$45 for it.

I was thinking about getting that one myself for emergency use when traveling. I have a coupon for 39.95 and realize that it will be noisy and probably take some time to inflate tires to 65 or 85 psi. Would not think it would work in case of a flat but would work to top off tires a few pounds. It only weighs 21 pounds so that's a good thing too. When I winterize I blow out the lines and add antifreeze too, so even if the 1 CFM at 40 psi is a bit on the light side, I have the antifreeze there too. Here's a link to it at Harbor Freight.
Pancake Air Compressor - 3 Gallon, 100 PSI

my brother-in-law bought one like fonzie posted from Sears. Works ok but takes a few minutes to fill tires, tank runs out fast. So many opinions and their all good, only needs to please you.

I keep a 3gal cake in the storage bay...good for tires, n airbags......I will say that to take my 20" tires from low at 50psi to 65-70 takes a while....like 8-10 min of running....mind you it would inflate any tire in a pinch.....but it may take a while.....and forget blowing lines out with it....you CAN but its agonizingly painfully slow...I use the craftsman 30 gal for that...and keep a 60 gal in the shop for constant duty like painting, grinding, or using the da to polish

I have a Sears evolv, it has done all I need of it including airing up the 17" tires on my PU.

I paid 59.99( I think) on sale.

Have not tried it, my trailer is factory set up for pulling the pink right out of the jug so I do it the easy way.

Two gallons in and I am done took about 1/2 hour if I remember right.
