"Best" is subjective. What you think is best may not be what I think is best.
Some people think the cheapest is best, some think lithium are best, others go for 6 volt golf cart batteries, others die on the AGM sword.

Yep. There is some objectivity based on RVing style (extended boondocking, generator or no generator, etc.), but it is subjective for many.

I have friends who could use a 7 Ah gel cell to have power between traveling and camping! They can't boondock because with two people they can't go 24 hours without filling their grey tank! We camp for Halloween weekend and they drive home for showers.

Best all around value for most are the Trojan T105 AGM which will fit perfectly in your battery compartment

Would be good to understand how you will be using your coach to give feedback. Examples: do you typically hook up to shore power; when camped without shore power, are you good with running your generator. With our Aria 3901, we like to boondock and I like to run generator sparingly for the peace and quiet. So I felt getting larger capacity batteries was the way to go. And I like good bang for buck, so went with flooded type to include the Flow-Rite system for very easy water maintenance. Based on reviews and price, I went with four Rolls S-605 flooded batteries. Gives a nice 936Ah bank. I did verify the battery storage compartment could support the extra weight as each battery is 125lbs. Good luck!
