I dunno, whenever I've done designs, the larger ships have ample free space. In the small ships it can be tight, but the larger ones are hard to fill up.

LBB2?

With LBB5 there is always more power, armour, and weapons to fill them with...

One ship in the convoy is a large government-owned/operated freighter (or a typical subsidized merchant if it is important to not stick out like a sore thumb) which carries supplies that the escorts likely need.
Dilbert (mostly) beat me to it.

I was thinking of a WWII photo from Ulithi Atoll: supply ships as far as the camera can see, waiting for Third / Fifth Fleet to come back for a re-load.
Also work for a Dark Sun (D&D) session involving a merchant caravan. The porters (this is a cheapskate shoestring effort) can carry more cargo if they are not also carrying their own survival rations. Therefore a chuck wagon is part of the mix.

it's cheaper, sure. so long as the fleet sticks together, so long as the fleet train isn't broken up. otherwise it starts costing entire ships (for want of a nail and all that).
