Twin or single battery - campervan

Hi guys, although I've already built one van, I'm now building a bigger one and would love a lithium setup but just can't justify the cost, so going with an AGM battery setup, but should I go for twin batteries or a single large capacity one?I'm thinking along the lines of 300ah..

There's pros and cons to 2x6v in series vs 2x12v in parallel vs 1x 12v. For most users I think they're mostly similar. For unusual scenarios - e.g. if you have need for redundancy in remote areas etc, you would already know which arrangement to choose.

I would just let cost, vendor availability and spacing drive your decision if you don't have any other specific criteria.
