Been thinking about this myself. Comes down to two things for me, do I want to power all the outlets or a select location. For a select location I would choose near our TV, when we've boondocked that's where we needed 110v. Last time we used a Craftsman Power Supply/12v Jump Box/Air Compressor that has its own battery and it worked great for the TV. The true deciding factor to install nothing was the fact that by the time I added 2 quality batteries and bought a good quality sine wave inverter I could almost buy a generator that would power everything including my wall mounted A/C. When you're talking about Summer in the south, A/C is almost a necessity if you want to enjoy your sleep.
Drilling to install the wire I would always go through the floor. Use a small bit first that would make a hole that's easy to fill if it turns out to be in the wrong location. Oh yeah, why 2 batteries since I already have 1? I know from my truck driving days that adding a new battery to an old one is just asking for trouble and will insure an early death for both.
