Do you have a brand name preference?

If so then buy a deep cycle battery from that company.

Optima blue top AGM?
I hear good things about them but have not tried one.

What ever you get make sure it is AGM for the maintenance side.

You sure can't beat the track record and longevity of a good ol Trojan T105's. They now offer a HE version that is pretty attractive. They DO cost a touch more than what you will find at your local box stores, but they pay off in spades if properly maintained.

The main difference being a nice thick solid plate compared to some of the "mesh weave" type plates often found in box store deep cycle batteries. If you are a seasonal camper (say a handful of weekend getaways during the year) it's probably not worth the additional expense, but I would still be looking at the true deep cycle 6v batteries.
