Batteries have series classes that have certain dimensions. If you no longer have your owner's guide, you can roughly measure the size of the battery and any vendor can tell you which class it is in. Even within each class, batteries can have different capacities and 'Cold starting amps' is one of the most important.
If you have them available in your area, look for an Interstate Battery dealer as Consumer Reports has rated them in either first or second place depending on class and their dealer network is national as the name implies. 
I have had miserable luck with Exide and WalMart's 'Everlast.' One of the latter failed in 10 months, had a 2 year - "no charge" replacement warranty. When I tried to excercise that, I was told that the battery price was now $10 higher and they would give me a new one if I paid that difference plus tax. I not only pointed to the obvious sticker on the battery, I started getting a little loud with another half-dozen customers standing at the so-called service desk. They decided to give me a new battery without the 10 bucks. That gave me another reason not to trust WalMart.

Your dome light may be staying on. Manually turn it off for a night, see if that helps. You definately have a slow draw somewhere.
