I have no choice but to put in a 54 x 30 tub or if I can find one at the right price a 54 x 54 (which would be nice).

However, it will probably be 54 x 30.

Are these really uncomfortable? And why do they only make a 30" wide? You would think if they sacrifice length, you could find a 32" or wider (but I can't anywhere).

Some makes I've ran into -- Pendant (at *******) and Bootz Kona?

Are the 54 x 30 tubs usually the old steel type?
