We installed this tub along with the matching wall surround. If your walls are flush and you make the opening the correct size by shimming/sistering new studs, then this will fit and install pretty easily. We layed some quickcrete down first then set the tub in and leveled it and let it sit for a day. We had access underneath so we shimmed the front feet and outside feet with some wood, and the tub is as solid as can be. This is a great tub for the price.
CAREFULLY INSPECT ALL PARTS BEFORE YOU INSTALL.
We liked the looks of the unit, and the strength of the material when pressing on floor models were the 2 big selling points for us.
Before install I looked the tub over, but it wasn't until it was already installed and we were doing clean up that we discovered a hairline crack. Construction dirt filled it in and made it visible.
Only option was to rip it out and replace. I physically touched every inch of the second unit to ensure nothing was hidden from view - I recommend you do the same.
New tub is in and so far I've been happy with it.

Quality tub that was easy to install. It's just tall enough that a standard waste & overflow drain (with a trip lever) is too short to work properly. Had to upgrade to a cable drain which is much more expensive. Overall good product though
