Battery box size - 2016 24GL

I'm looking to upgrade to lithium batteries in my 2016 24GL.

One thing that was suggested: using a single BattleBorn 8D for 270Ah. It certainly has some nice features.

Does anyone know the dimensions of the battery box on this coach? Any chance this big battery (21.29 × 11.59 × 10.01 in) might fit?

I'd rather not give up any more of the rear storage than I have to, but it sounds like a lot of it may have to go regardless to fit in the various electronics.

You probably don't want to put lithium batteries in the battery cage under your van. They're too exposed to the cruel world down there. We gave up space inside under the rear bench for a pair of 200Ah LifeBlue batteries and a 3kW Victron inverter / charger. It was worth the space to get the upgrade.
