I've already done my research, it is fact. Do you have links to educate me and update my research? Keep in mind he does not dry camp more than 1 or 2 nights at a time.

You won't get the amp hrs but if you don't dry camp and don't care go with one 12V.
Keep track of how long it lasts and then decide if it was the right choice.

I don't see where there is any cost to convert???
If you have 2 - 12V bank now you have 2 jumpers... w 2 - 6V youonly need 1 jumper....many double them up...just in case you get stranded and only have 12s avsilsble...EZ to revert to 2-12s

He's right; they are made in 12 V with the same AH rating, but expect to pay a 50% premium over (2) 6 volts.

I can't remember how many times that I have done this. That is a really, really big battery (dimensions and presumably weight!) Comparison attached. You can't beat the weight and dimensions of the plates and the plate area.
