Battery compartment replacement

Hello all, I'm new to the airstream world so any help would be appreciated.
I just purchased a 1980 24' Carravelle, the battery box is wasted and needs replacement, anyrecommendations? Has anyone built their own or is there aftermarket ones that are slightly bigger? I just bought an Agm battery from a local battery shop and the compartment is about a 1/2 inch too small. I was going to put the battery under the dinette but I'm seeing conflicting information if this is safe or not.
Do I need to be concerned with the voltage the truck harness will be charging the battery with, will it over charge?
Hope this isn't like the doctors office and it's okay to ask more than 1 question at a time
