Default Dual Battery Tray for NT - Any that will fit 12"?

OK we bought our first camper trailer on the weekend and it has a 90AH AGM battery which is 12" long, I already had a 120AH AGM battery which I'm thinking of installing in the camper instead of the 90AH (and may add another 120AH at a later stage so they are matching brands and capacity).

Now I wouldn't mind installing the 90AH AGM under my bonnet of my NT to run the fridge when it's in the back of the Pajero and also an emergency backup if I accidentally flatten the start battery.

Now my issue is, so far all the auxiliary battery trays I've seen for the NT only take a 10" battery. Now my start battery is less than 12 months old and is a 12" battery so I don't want to replace it and I can't move it.

Anyone know of a 2nd battery tray that will fit a NT that will take a 12" battery?

Nope looks like its only a 10inch one as well, it takes N48Z which from what I can tell is a 10inch battery as well...

Pretty sure a few on here use the Basha trays, these are 310mm long.

I've got a Basha tray in mine. Well made, good finish, fitted easily and most importantly... Fits a full 12" battery.

It is tight but works well for me.

What battery did you guys find that is less than 300mm?
4wd supacentre batteries are all 329mm long so won't fit

If your looking at AGM batteries under bonnet just keep in mind, heat is not their favourite thing.

I know nothing about these batteries below, apart from the specs "on paper" impress me at a glance, including the weight of the thing.
60 useable amps
Price is fine if lived up to spec that is ??

This one they also reckon can go under bonnet 329mm though
100 useable amps

Default Batt Tray

Lots of trays around that claim full size. It is the air con pipe that is the barrier to fitting full size battery. Double check before laying out $$$$$$.
