Portable Compressor Recommendation

Can anyone recommend a low-cost, durable small portable air compressor (120v or 12v) that is capable of inflating/maintaining RV tires up to 65 lbs without taking a lifetime to do it? Does anyone have any experience with the Bon-Aire i8000 model. The specs on it seem to be decent.

I just received my new Warn STC 12V air compressor. I bought it directly from Warn based on a recommendation from a member here. I did a search and found some good discussions on this subject.
I will try out my new toy in the next day or two and will let you know how it works.

We got a small portable, light-weight compressor at Habor Freight. I know Harbor Freight sends shudders through some people, and it's definitely not a high-end compressor (about $75 if I remember right) but it does a great job for what we need it for...topping off tires and keeping everything inflated... By the time it dies I will have got my money's worth out of it. It uses the 12v clamps to the battery on the truck or the trailer and I can reach all tries from the same place (with a Bambi). I didn't want one that uses the 12v plug-in. The nice thing about Harbor Frieght is that if you get the inexpensive warranty you can replace it if anything does go wrong, no questions asked.
