Here you go! . I The key to finding them is to Google search for GC2 #13228 . I used two of these for quite a few years on my trailer. They fit my two Trojan T-105 batteries perfectly.

Unfortunate that Century Plastics offers these battery boxes in white only. [emoticon]

I went with the RV Armor battery box for two reasons. 1. it matches the front of the trailer. 2. it helps keep the honest people honest

I bought a century plastics battery box to hold 4 GC2's a few years ago.
Drilled a couple of holes in the bottom to let any water out and put a locking cable around it. One guy painted his black to match the propane cover. You can get them for 2 GC2's also.

Yep. Just place 2 of them side by side on the trailer tongue rack.[emoticon]

If you don't mind spending some pennies this is what I use now.

do a search. I have a pair of side by side in white and a black end to end on the other trailer. Many mfg make this style you should be able to find them in either black or white.

My local battery store has them in stock in both colors and both configurations

I got my Century battery box from All Battery Sales & Service. It was a little pricey. However, it was the only box that would hold both of my new GC-2 batteries and fit in the limited space on my tongue.

I was in the same boat as far as cost all the battery boxes were way too much money for some plastic , so after weeks of debating,searching almost spending too much money i came across this box. Fits my 2 GC batteries just fine and has some space left over , I just now need to drill bottom hole and top hole for my vent, but for 20 buck Canadian, i think it should do
