Best 6 volt Coach House Battery

Hello all I have a 2016 HJ Seneca that I am ending to replace coach batteries.
5 years ago I replaced the original 2 12 volt batteries with 4 6 volt Interstate
Lead acid . I have read some of the posts with some replacing with AGM or Lithium. Not sure I am ready for the expense of that conversion.
I live in Colorado , what are the best replcement 6 volt options .
Suggestions ????

If you are staying with Lead Acid batteries, I suggest Trojan 105s

Another recommendation for Trojan. I've got a pair of T-125's which have been doing great for the last 3 years. Rolls Surrette also makes a very good 6v GC2 - but they are a bit harder to find.

A third vote for the Trojan. This is our fifth year with T-105's and they are still going strong.

If you can afford the change and plan to keep the Rv more than 5 years consider Lithium. Remember, 100 amps of lead original capacity equals 50 amps of Lithium.
NO distilled water
NO worry about excessive discharge harming them
No worry as to remaining amps if you get a bluetooth batter
Less than half the weight
Longer lifespan with minimal degradation of total charge
Cons, needs solar or Lithium capable charge system.

higher initial cost.
