Battery class on Escape 21

Will be picking up an Escape 21 that needs 2 new 6v batteries. I will take them with me to pick up the Escape. What battery class is the original? GC2??

Interstates 6V GC2. Costco sells them for around $85.

you can use any GC2 or T105 golf cart battery (2 of them). Note that the one Costco sells is the budget low end Interstate and has about 10% less capacity than the premium Interstate. Trojan makes the best GC batts.

Now that all said, I've got the cheap Costco batts in my E21, with the solar system and no inverter, we just don't use that much DC even when dry camping for a week or two. I have a little 300W inverter I use to run laptop chargers and such, usually during the day when I have peak solar, I find it rare when I've used even 10% of my batteries capacity

As we built out our 21 last year, we opted to go with AGM batteries. Escape told us that these were the AGM's they'd be comfortable swapping in for us at pickup.
