There is probably more controversy regarding battery choice for motorhomes than there is for gassing.

Your choice will most likely come down to price, but should include how you intend to use the van.
There appears to currently be a push towards Lithium but they are horrendously expensive.

Whatever you choose ensure that the system within the van can cope and control your choice, as the various types have different needs for charging.

As a general rule of thumb for the occasional user the most cost effective will be flooded cell lead acid i.e. what most would call "normal battery". There has been advances made for this type recently and batteries such as the Yuasa L36-EFB are a decent choice.

You will I'm sure get many conflicting replies.
