Best TPMS for an Airstream

Trying to find the best TPMS for an 2015 27FB FC. My 2015 Tundra has its own monitoring system.

So all I really need is 4 for the AS tires + AS spare tire.

Would like the setup in the monitor to show this simple setup.

Thanks,

Glenn

we use the EEZTire Tire Pressure Monitoring System
i bought it with 6 sensors

4 for the TV
2 for the AS

they come with security measure so the ext tire monitor cant be removed
it displays pressure and temp for each wheel
also high low set pt for temp and pressure on a per wheel basis

no issues in 16 months of use

I bought the TST system for both the trailer and TV. Easy to set up, good monitor showing both temperature and pressure. I didn't mount the monitor, rather have it in a compartment where I can glance at it. The alarm will definitely get your attention.

TST is easy to operate
Easy to change batteries and the sending units are small and lite

Adventure, interested in the TST507 but not interested in installing metal valve stems on the trailer wheel. Sounds like the non-flow thru caps might work on my 16” e rated Michelins? Thanks in advance ��

TireMinder!!! It's roughly about $600 with the spare sensor for the tire.

Bellacorp. They work well. Outstanding customer service. Good price.

If you run with pressure on your Tundra tires higher than the Toyota door sticker (I have OEM Bridgestones Alenzas on my Tundra and the Toyota-recommended 30 PSI is way too low in general and especially when towing in my opinion... I run at 40 psi... max cold is 44) consider getting sensors for your truck, too. The factory TPMS won't alert until pressures are well below your chosen pressure.

Absolutely switch out the rubber valve stems for steel, screw-on stems. The added flexing of an all-rubber valve stem or even a brass cored rubber stem is likely to lead to a leak. I tried the original Airstream stems and wound up replacing all four due to leaking after adding TPMS sensors... and the Bellacorps are small compared to some other sensors.

Consider a repeater regardless of whose system you choose. Many Airstream owners report needing a repeater. I do. Mine is mounted inside the propane tank cover.

That is an expensive system. The TST with 4 sensors is about $300 and includes a repeater and an additional cap sensor for the spare is $50.

I replaced an unreliable Dill system with a TST. Love the ease of use of the TST.

You will need to change out to metal valve stems no matter system you use, unless you opt for internal sensors. If you do not, the rubber valve stems will eventually fail due to the constant flexing caused by the weight of the sensor.

I have used the TST system for several years on a number of TTs and my 1 ton dually, and it has worked very well. I believe this is the system used by most of the commercial haulers who use TPMS systems. If it is good enough for the big boys, it is good enough for me.

Must have: Metal valve stems. I ran rubber for a really short time to see what would happen. Not too long and I saw on the rim where the transmitters were hitting. Amazing how much wobble they produce when rolling down the road.

TST 507 here.
