Hi and welcome to MHF, for a leisure batteries, I'd go for as large a ah capacity you can find that will live in the space under the seats really, few of us will have seen such a van or remember the dimensions etc, you are the man on the spot so out with your tape measure and have a look on Ebay, or post the size on here and we can look for you, you could also go to a battery dealer who may help you, just make sue if you buy your own that the + & - terminal posts are the right way round to suit your cables, unless the cables are long enough that it doesn't matter.

I see your in Horwich, this is where I get mine from http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1207348714...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Only 30 mins ish from you

Sound advice from Kev !!

Its a bit like freezers, buy the biggest you can afford/fit in (as for batteries its about getting one with the highest Amp Hour capacity that you can)

Think in terms of your hot water tank at home, the bigger the tank (battery) the more use you can make of it, never underestimate how much battery power you need. Lights take a lot so make sure all of the interior lights are LED, they use far less power than any other type so will extend the amount of time you can use them immensely.

Andy

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Also it sounds like you have a pair unless one is for the engine, (doubtful) they should also be replaced as a pair as a weak (older) one will drag down the new one.
