This is one of those measure twice situations. The box will hold a group 27 battery. BUT not all group 27 batteries are the same size. My advice is to mesure all three dimentions and get the biggest battery you can fit in the box.

Nice to have you on the forum. I agree with Brett on the group 27 battery. My '77 Excella 500 has dual battery compartments , one on each side of my 40 lb. propane tanks. A grp 27 Delco Voyager 105 amp hr. battery fits fine but the grp 27 Duralast deep cycle was 1/4" too long. According to the Delco site, the M27MF battery is 12.5 inches long, 6.8 inches wide and 8.8 inches in heigth.
