The most difficult part will be to get your one piece off the wall without causing surrounding damages. Once this is accomplished you could cut it down so removal is easier. Make some measurement as to the size of shower you want and RV Shower Stalls for Sale is a place that should have all you would need to do the job. Note the floor drain will have to be relocated but it is a doable thing. Good luck and keep us posted.

faye.....if you're planning on taking out/destroying the old tub, how about having someone cut out the front of the tub and rework so it's shorter. Probably could be done with fiberglass. Just tape off and protect the edges so that you could refinish the new work with a rubberized finish with a matching or contrasting color.

This is much easier than changing to a shower and should come out very nicely. Your tub is either plastic or fiberglass and both can be easily altered and refinished. I think I would use a material similar to a truck bed liner with a little stipple for traction. Would be strong and again easy to do.
