Since solar involves stationary batteries, I would ask Trojan technical if these can withstand shock and vibration of an RV. I suspect cost could be high because I don't see them listed under RV applications.
Not sure about Trojan specifically, but AGM batteries are designed to be more vibration resistant and lighter weight than conventional batteries. They were originally designed for use in aircraft which also allows them to operate in any position.
