I cannot tell from the picture what group size your old battery is. Most of the RV dealers use group 27 since they are a few dollars cheaper than a group 29 battery. Most Interstate batteries are marked with the group size on the battery.
You have picked a group 24 one size smaller than a group 27. I would go with the group 27.

The 27's they have don't look like it would fit in our existing battery box. Do I need to worry about that?

Well I would say your old battery is a group 24. Your battery box should also fit a group 27 most do but we cannot be sure.

I ended up getting a group 24. I live pretty far from walmart so didn't want to risk it. Our trailer is really small. Does that make a difference in which battery should be used? We have a 20 footer

The size of the trailer does not really determine the size of the battery only the load you will be pulling out of the battery. When you get home make sure you put the battery on a charger and charge it up good before you install it in your RV. Also make sure the battery connections are clean, shiny and tight when you install.

If I hook it up on the rv and plug into a 110, will it charge it that way?

Yes the converter in the RV will charge up the battery.

Perfect! We don't leave until next Friday so I want to see how it all works before we leave.
