My TT only has room for two batteries up front and for me two 6-v worked fine but have to watch extended battery usage, like needing the furnace all night.

With my new FW trailer I new I wanted to maximize my battery capacity. I went with four 6 volt AGM batteries these are heavy at 90 lbs each and the space is tight. I wouldn't be able to add water so AGM was the best option. These give me 600Ah. I only boondock so I use batteries a lot. I will be adding Solar and a inverter/charger.

Those are my reasons, no hurry. Batteries don't last forever.

Thanks Imnaha - that's the dream, to do as you are planning. But baby steps first, and as you say, batteries don't last forever...
And thanks to JMooney! I like that idea very much. Off to WalMart, Target, etc. to see what might be out there to accommodate!

I have two 6 volt batteries on my rig. I used two Noco group 24 boxes with the "inside" handles cut off. With a hand saw it's really easy to slice them off flush. The lids will not snap down, but using the plastic straps, everything is held down pretty snug.

Good Luck!
