newTOpro, depending on your needs it could very well be that a smaller 25Ah or so AGM would serve your needs.

Since you posted that you have plenty of trunk space a flooded cells Deep Cycle inside of a marine type battery holder may be the most practicel cost wise.
A flooded cells Deep Cyle of approx. 125Ah is around $90 while a 48Ah AGM is close to $200

I used two 125Ah flooded cells ones for over 5 years and I used them a lot more in 5 years than most would in 10 years or more. One point however is that an AGM tends to live alot longer in years than a flloded cells does. The AGM in my Generac generator is 10 years old and still works fine but then I never deep discharge it either. Generator starts in under 5 seconds and battery gets recharged righ away just like a typical car starting battery.
