Not sure what batteries I'll end up with at this point, but was thinking lately of two type 31 120ish amp hour AGM deep cycles. Only 20 lbs more on the tongue, but lot's more amp hours compared to the 80ah on my current grp 24 flooded. I'll look at the 6Vs and compare at some point. The AGM seem like the thing for me. I know I'll never take proper care of flooded batteries over the long haul, and perhaps more importantly, I want to put one battery
in the cabin, so AGM is a requirement there. Not the cheapest option, but I kill batteries dead by blinking, so I may even come out ahead in the long run with the more durable glass mat tech.
