Battery Box Modification Options

My 02 Safari came with a plastic battery box mounted on the tongue behind the propane tanks. The box is big enough to mount a size 31 battery. Right now there is a size 24 lead acid marine battery mounted. I am planning on updating my converter to a good three stage converter/charger and increasing my battery capacity.

The only simple option I see is going to a size 31 AGM battery like a Lifeline battery. Has anyone come up with a simple option to haul two batteries on this type of AS? The dual cam hitch mounts pen up against the present battery box which leaves no room for an additional box beside the present battery box.

Any ideas are more than welcome.

Raise the box to clear the mounts here is a picture of an old trailer with a raised box for the same reason you mention.

Thank you. That is a logical solution.
