3 years hasn't been a problem. The only thing I don't like about it - if I am coming down on the brake pedal at the same time as the compressor kicks in the vibration makes it feel like ABS is engaging and I end up altering my brake input before I realize what happened! For that reason I typically only run the compressor when I need it.

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...
