No experience with them but I have heard that Costco carries them in some locations. May be a better price.

Thanks! There's a Costco about 2 miles from my house. I'll have to swing in and check it out.

COSTCO has many different batteries, some true deep cycle and some hybrid, just make sure that the battery you buy does NOT have a CCA rating on it, as that would be a hybrid (the plates are not as thick as a true deep cycle battery)

The Trojan T-105 is widely used. The golf cart users buy them by the hundreds and demand the best quality so the manufacturers are always improving on them. Word spreads fast in the industry if there is something better.
See your local golf cart supplier. I paid $125 each, out the door.

Some people with lots of knowledge prefer the Royal battery over Trojan. Battery Mart in my area has them. I have two of the six volts and they are doing what I need done although I haven't had them long enough to tell about longevity.

So my mind got a senior moment, I meant to say CROWN batteries!
Must have had too much Crown Royal in my past!

What are the benefits of (2) 6V batteries versus (1) 12V?

I believe u could get higher Amp-Hours (AH). So beneficial if you camp without electrical hookups.
