Two Batteries for my Bambi

My 2003 Bambi (19ft) owner's manual indicates that it should have two batteries, but mine only has one...a group 29/31 mounted above the A-frame. Apparently later in the model year, and thereafter, Airstream mounted two group 24 batteries in a square metal box below the A-frame. Has anyone retrofitted a single battery model with a two battery box like the ones on newer Airstreams? Side to side or end to end installation above the A-frame doesn't appear possible because of the position of the load distribution hitch attachment.

Early 2003 models were built with only one deep cycle battery. Units built after December of that year had some improvements and upgrades. The battery box is available through Airstream dealers and can be retrofitted.
