So.... up grade from what? What are they offering?
The real question is what's in it now and how much do you need?
Your need is based on how you use it - always hooked up?, boondocking?, or what combo?
Also what are you going to want to do: get an inverter and a microwave, etc., or minimum?

I believe they come with a Gr24 battery which is OK for several days boondocking. We changed to a Gr27 which is good for at least 5 days if your not using the heater.

Thumbs up Welcome Aboard....

The battery is usually one of the first items that has to be replaced on a new unit....2-5yrs depending on use and care.

IIWY..I would use as delivered, determine usage parameters and the best upgrade options available.
