The one with the longest guarantee. :D:

AGM batteries is maybe best fitted for such use, but high cycle also do good, but it also depend how you charge the battery.

The "medium cycle" Raylite 102ah "Leisure" battery has worked well for my fridge application. They are very reasonably priced by comparison to most others and if I'm not mistaken you get a 2 yr guarantee.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.
