Does anyone know the size of the battery compartment on a 515/4 Avondale Dart "Godiva"

We're collecting it on wednesday and have almost everything we need (ebay is my friend ;)) but before i buy a battery I want to make sure i don't buy one thats too big (size not Amps) I think a 85 amp/hr will be sufficient but just want to know the comaprtment size before i buym dont fancy buying one that don't fit or rolls about banging the sides, any help appriciated

Thanks Guys

I would wait until I took delivery to see the dimensions but it would depend on whether you are going to have a motor mover fitted later, in which case a 110 amp deep cycling battery would be best. About £110 you only get what you pay for. Regards Peter

The two common sizes are:

 

Width: 352mm

Height: 223mm

Depth: 171mm

If the EHU connection is separate.

 

Width: 557mm

Height: 278mm

Depth: 171mm

If the EHU connection is integral.

 

Personally I would measure yours before committing yourself to a particular battery. 85AH should be fine, but if you intend to stay more than a couple of nights without hookup, I would recommend the largest capacity battery that will physically fit. Probably a 110AH. The battery should sit in a tray within the box, and be retained by a strap to prevent movement when towing.
