Battery tray

Hello everyone.
I just wanted to show off a battery tray I just built. I went to go and replace the house batteries in my RV and find out that the battery tray was falling apart. No one sells a dual battery tray that lets the batteries sit inline and not side by side. So I built one. Tell me what you think. Thank you.

Funny, I was going to mention the sneaks.
Tray looks good, now I am inspired. I need to do my propane tank first.

Actually looking at it, this is what I am considering on mine.

I want to cut the tray supports, then install 6- 1/2 bolts to support the tray and put a plate under it that will fit onto a floor jack. Then if I want to check the water and connections, then I can put the jack under it, back the bolts out, lower it and then check, and yes I will install a back up restraint.
