What type of battery do I need for Rockwood Freedom 1640ltd?

Checked our popup today in anticipation of trip and discovered our battery had been stolen. What kind do I need to get to replace it? Thanks.

Agree with the deep cycle.

Size: as big as you can fit in the battery box.

Reality: almost any decent size 24 if all your camping involves electrical hookups or just overnights without hookups. If you are dry camping or boondocking (no hookups) for more than a night, then a little more planning and probably some modification is wanted. In dry camping and boondocking, your unassisted battery runs out long before the propane or water runs out.

We wrapped a bicycle cable lock around our battery after hearing another story. Much cheaper than a new battery. We also take battery in for winter storage so no surprise in the spring

Sorry to hear about the battery. Last year someone stole both of my batteries so I relate.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
