Air Compressor For Motorhome

I want to get an air compressor to carry in the motorhome to inflate the 235/80R22.5 tires up to 90 psi. I have two choices, the Kobalt 1.5-HP 3-Gallon 155-PSI Electric Air Compressor from Lowe's @$129 or the PORTER-CABLE CMB15 150 PSI 1.5 Gallon Oil-Free Fully Shrouded Compressor from Amazon.com @$109. Any input as to which one to buy would be helpful.

Judging from your tire size I am assuming you have a large MH which probably has air brakes. If so, do what I did, and have an air chuck installed on your existing air lines. All I carry is an air hose.

I have a gas motorhome so no air brakes.

I have one from Sears. I think it was about $100 with free shipping. Adjustable output and goes up to 275 psi.

I have the Kobalt from Lowe's. Works well and is pretty quiet.

I have the Porter-Cable 150 psi unit. Works well, I recommend it.

Here's another one to consider. I picked mine up from Home Depot - it handles the 120 psig requirements of our 5th wheel tires very well. It's compact enough to fit in the toolbox in the bed of my truck.

We carry one of these and a long extension cord. Pumps our 22.5 tires up easily.

PORTER-CABLE CMB15 150 PSI 1.5 Gallon Oil-Free Fully Shrouded Compressor from Amazon.com @$109.

Works great, and useful around the S&B for routine maintenance and clearing out sprinkler lines for the winter.

I think I'll go with the Porter Cable compressor from Amazon.

I have the same identical unit.

Works great on all of my tires.

Looks like Sear's no longer sells their version of the Porter Cable.

X2...works great on my 275/70/22.5's, is light and easy to use.

Takes up very little space as well.

With an extension cord I can reach all six tires easily.
