House Battery? - Usage Calculation Help?

I'm trying to decide on what battery setup I need for my wagon. I have the stock single battery with the "heavy duty" alternator. We plan on running the following:

-MaxxAir Deluxe Fan
-3-4 LED Lights or maybe wire the cabin lights into the house battery
-Portable refrigerator, likely ARB
-Use exiting 12V Cig lighter and wire it to be hot all the time to charge iPad or iPhone
-Marpac sound machine for sleeping toddlers...

Typically we will camp for 3-4 days maximum. Often we will be near family with trailers or at camp sites that may have power so we could run a cord for shore power. Thought we would buy a battery box from Hein and mount in underneath the van, add a house battery or two? Which batteries? Don't think I need to go with solar. Ideas?
