seeking "smallish" battery boxes for my Trojans

I am switching the location of my house bank (four Trojan T-105s) and am looking for battery boxes that will hold two or four batteries.

I have found a few, but the exterior dimensions are greater than I can accommodate in the new location. Of course, I could make my own but am hoping someone here knows of good quality boxes that are as tight as possible to the batteries.

Don't Trojans come in small sealed packages?

Oh batteries! Never mind.

AND, the lube should help with the tight fit.

Last time I looked, they didn't even need batteries.
