An air compressor was something that we thought we could do without when we left for life on the road. We quickly realized we were wrong. Between our truck and fifth wheel we have 12 tires (two of which are full size spares) and our little electric bike compressor wasn't going to do the job when one of those was low.

We wanted a compressor that was powerful enough to do the job but that wouldn't take up too much of our precious cargo space. We found the Ridgid Vertical Pancake Compressor and have very impressed with the efficiency of this product. At 30 pounds, this lightweight compressor is just what we needed to get the job done. No more looking for gas stations! Now we can be all set to go before hitting the road.
