Viair Portable Air Compressor

Our experience at Letchworth State Park convinced me that getting a portable air compressor before we hit the full time road is a good idea. But which one to get?

Airforums is your friend when it comes to Airstream research and sometimes SOB (Some Other Brand) research. I ended up buying the Viair 400P-RV for several reasons.

  1. The maximum 150 psi is plenty for the 80 psi I need for the Goodyear Endurance tires on Shiny.
  2. The 2.3CFM Free Flow rating will add air to the tires quickly.
  3. Can be used to blow out the air from the water lines when winterizing.
  4. Comes with an additional hose to reach the trailer tires.
  5. Automatic shut off so it only runs when you add air pressure.

At the time I purchased the unit a Google search lead to a dozen comparisons to other compressor kits and the Viair 400p-RV was at the top of the list on all of them.

It has come in handy as we’ve used it twice so far on our trip south.
