Answer: 
Oh yeah, this is the Villager. You have to do a tile or stone surround with this. Realistically, nothing else could possibly last as long as a cast-iron tub will. The porcelain overlay on this is far thicker than on a steel tub.

I've answered this question a few times, so here's my standard answer again -- you can buy quite a few white plastic/fiberglass/acrylic universal tub surrounds that will work with this tub, at least initially. Over time, they will all fade and stain and look generally dingy next to the lasting finish of the porcelain overlay of this steel tub.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 80 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tub for price Tub is heavy, but will last for decades. Made to last. I purchased for a remodel and took out the other one that was 5 decades old. It had been refinished and had no life in it. Had it dropped at store for free and my contractor picked it up. October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A really great tub The Tub weighs 310 lbs so it was a hand full for my installers. My first tub had to be returned due to a defect that was covered by the wood crate. The rest of the install was easy. It is really a beautiful tub that I would buy again October 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stock Only place left that stocks cast iron. Has to be good. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great solid tub & good buy A bit of a challenge to get 315lb tub up curved stairway, but it made it. Looks great, feels solid, hope it will last a long long time. Matches standard white subway tile. June 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by White Cast Iron Tub We bought a house with an almond colored tub, we have re-done the entire first floor of the house, and the white tub makes the bathroom extremely modern looking. We talked about leaving the tub, but for less than $400 it was well worth the change out. The tub is heavy, but anything that is built to last is always going to take a little more elbow grease to get it installed, but well worth it in the end!! January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Bathtub. Awesome Quality. The bathtub looks great and feels solid. We remodeled an original bathroom to the house (42 years old) and wanted a fresh new look and design. It goes well with our new Kohler toilet also. We were hesitant on getting this tub because of the other reviews saying it was so low.. but honnestly we just shower in it and bathe our infant child in it so it really doesn't bother us. And it's not really that low either. With a small bathroom, it's actually a better fit. Look at the pictures I uploaded for the end result. Only negative is that It's incredibly heavy. But that's cast iron for you. March 11, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ok Pro: easy to install, nice looking, Con: shallow and seems to damage easily, had to wait to get several that was not damaged from the factory or from shipping This a decent standard type tub. I might recommend another style that is deeper if you like to take a bath. In general is a nice product but nothing spectatular. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tub! – Install Tips and Tricks I just finished installing this bathtub in my home and the install was easier than I had expected it to be. I picked up a few tricks during the process that I hope will help you when you go to install this tub yourself. First of all, this tub is REALLY nice. It’s a very simple tub and pretty shallow. This is for a kids bathroom, so we looked for something that is good for bathing little kiddos and probably our dogs as well. The cast iron insulates VERY well and it keeps the water nice and warm for a good long time. The tub also just FEELS solid. The feel when you step into the tub is that it’s just part of the house. No flex, no squeaks, nothing that feels like it’s an add-on. That said, this tub is HEAVY! I’d estimate it at over 300lbs. I had to get some help getting it into and out of the bed of the pickup. That, however, was all the help I needed with it. Once it was in my garage and sitting on the ground, I took some measurements. Some tubs have slightly different measurements than what is in the manufacturers specs, so it is always a good idea to check those. I used a level to simulate the back wall next to the drain and overflow and then checked all the measurements for those cutouts to align with the new plumbing. Turns out they were spot on with the specs. Home Depot sells a bathtub drain kit that I highly recommend you use. It comes with everything you’ll need to rebuild the plumbing stack under the tub. Pre-fit the plumbing stack and make sure it lines up EXACTLY before you slide the tub in place. The drain location is probably the most critical since it is underneath the tub and impossible to adjust once the tub is set. Lay your level across the dirt box to ensure that the drain sits 1/4 “ from flush with the floor. My dirt box was poured really large and I found out that I had to build up some concrete to accommodate for one of the tub’s feet. Measure the feet locations and ensure that you have a good, solid place for them to sit before you place the tub. To build up the concrete in my dirt box, I used some plywood and 2x4 scraps to make an L-shaped form, then sealed the edges with caulk from the inside against the dirt box walls. I used quickcrete and got it close. I then ran a bead of caulk all the way around the top of the new dirt box opening and poured self leveling underlayment to level the entire tub area. This paid off in spades because I didn't have to shim the tub as a result. To move the tub, I placed a piece of drywall against the back of a dolly and then strapped the tub, upright to the dolly with a ratchet strap. This was very stable and allowed me to easily move the tub into the bathroom. Once there, I lowered the tub down in front of the area where I was going to install it and used my legs to gently push it into the correct position. It slid easily across my floor and went in in about 5 minutes. No heavy lifting! Another trick I learned was to level the wall across all the studs surrounding the tub area. Take your 48” level and lay it horizontally across the studs. Make sure that it lays flat across each stud and touches each one. You can build up the wall with extra studs if necessary. This will ensure that the tile backer board sits flush and square and makes the job of installing tiles that much easier. Once in, use some roofing nails to fasten the edge of the tub to the studs prior to hanging the backer board. Install the drain seal by pushing down slightly on the drain pipe with a screwdriver and then gently slipping the rubber gasket into place between the drain pipe and the bottom of the tub. If you need to adjust the overflow, you should be able to access that from behind the wall pretty easily. That’s it, nothing to it! December 10, 2014
