How to remove a bath/shower enclosure from a mobile home bathroom?

We have a doublewide and want to remodel our main bathroom. There is a bath/shower enclosure in there and is not enough room to work around. Will it need to be cut in pieces to be removed?

    More than likely the shower was installed before the frame and door were in place so the chances of removing it in one piece and having it fit through the door to dispose of it is questionable. You would have to do some careful measuring and also consider any hallways you would have to move the shower through as well as going out an entry door to get it outside. I am remodeling my bathroom and we will have to cut the tub/shower into pieces to remove it since it was installed before frames and doors. We had to purchase a new shower/tub that comes in several pieces for the same reason. There is not room to move a one piece unit back into the bathroom unless we start taking out doors and door frames.

    Cut it up to remove it. Easier to handle and move around. I have even had to sledge hammer iron porcelain tubs to remove them.
