Thinking of buying an air compressor to inflate bike and vehicle tires and to avoid towing the TT down to the gas station to properly inflate its tires. What size and type of compressor would fit the bill?

That really depends on tire size. I have G rated tires (110psi) on my 5er so I need a 110v compressor. Smaller tires may get by with a 12v compressor.

I have a small basic 12volt unit that plugs into the plug in the the TV. 50psi fot the TT and 40psi for the TV. Nothing fancy--got it at walmart. Works for me.

I bought a $39.99 pancake compressor from Harbor Freight. I'm able to use it with an inverter off the trucks battery.

Pep Boys has one that is sometimes on sale for 20.00, regularly about 40.00.
I can't recall the brand at the moment, but it is 12 volt,fast, quiet and has a long coiled hose that has a regular shop style air hose quick connect. What is nice about this is that it allows the use of any size standard air hose to be connected to it. Since I have a longbed crewcab TV, a extra long air hose is nice. So I went to Harbor Freight and got their longest self coiling hose and fittings for less than 10.00. I can now reach
any tire position easily. And I can hook up other things such as a air nozzle etc.

It is a really nice unit,,,,and best of all,

Up to 110 lbs pressure. Had it three years. Take it camping with us for checking TT tires, bike tires, inflating beach rafts, etc. Very handy, doesn't take up much space. Been a great purchase..

Hope your travels are safe and the friendships made camping are lasting.
