Default Yet another keezer question

I just ordered a 7.2 cubic foot chest freezer that I plan to make into a keezer. I will be putting the CO2 bottle in there, I think it will fit nicely on the condenser hump. My question is this. How many 5 gallon cornelius kegs will fit in the chest? From all the photos I have looked at I believe the answer is 4. But I wanted to check with the experts first.

best way is to cut out cardboard and play with the configuration since im guessing not all 7.2 cf are created equal.

Might be 5, but internal dimensions vary.

Guess I learned something new. I thought all 7.2 chest freezers were the same dimensions. Once I receive the freezer and get a couple of kegs I'll be able to tell. Thanks for the help.
