More information required bud, what are you intending to run from the battery and for how long, how are you going to charge it, how long do you go away for, do you pay for leccy hookup, what type of fridge do you have, do you drive every day or set up camp for the week, and so on.

Buy the biggest you can afford. You will only get about 40 or 50% of a leisure battery's stated power before it needs recharging. Run it down any more and it will die very quickly. The answer depends on what you want to use it for. Fridges & coolboxes need a lot of power. LED lights don't need much. If you're hoping to get more than a couple of days use out of your battery between charges, you'll need to think very carefully about how you use it. This topic has been covered a lot. I reckon with a bit of effort we could put up a power usage calculator to answer this, but not tonight.
