I've got the Escape solar system with two "group 27" 12 volt batteries.
I put the inverter in the driver's side rear under seat storage area, along with a Progressive EMS-HW30C Surge Protector. Photos of the installation are on my trailer modification page.
As noted, I added a separate receptacle for the inverter, however Xantrex offers n inexpensive 20 amp transfer switch that could be used to connect it to an existing receptacle.
Actually, the two 12V batteries will do a better job of feeding an inverter than the pair of 6V, however they won't last as long. Because the 12V batteries are designed to start a vehicle, they have a better short term, high current output. The advantage of the 6V is more amp/hrs, and better deep cycling characteristics.
