As to capacity (Byron), I don't know about the OP but I am planning on installing a 12V compressor refrigerator and also need a CPAP machine to sleep. I have a solar system planned also but don’t want to take any chances running out of juice. I am a little (only a little) offended by your insinuation that a desire for sufficient electrical capacity somehow is not “camping” by your definition. Would you also cast disparaging comments on those who have two propane bottles and run a propane refrigerator?
If you wish to be offended that OK, be offended. I'll still report on my camping experiences and power usage when the subject comes up. I've often said there's several ways to do things one is add more and more and more capacity and the other is to reduce need or a combination of both.

Tim,
Oops, you're right: 225 ah, and it's nice to have that capacity, especially when you consider a 50% discharge.

Thanks for the info, lost. Dual batteries is on the to-do list for me. Why? Because I can. I don't want to worry about running out. Same reason I have 60 pounds of propane, and 40 gallons of water.

As for weight, a little tongue weight will be good.
