Ok-a-a-a-yah! How small?
The smallest everyday tubs I know of are trailer house tubs.
Maybe some more information and some dimensions would be helpful.

Keep in mind how limited your replacement options will be if you go with anything less than the 60", if you need a new tub and you got some crazy small custom size you'll regret it in a hurry.

We have a 54" tub. When we were considering replacing it I found several options. As Bud mentioned, RV suppliers are one way to go, but American Standard makes a 54" tub. At least they did when I was looking. To be practical, with a standard tub I wouldn't consider anything shorter. It would be useless for any reasonable sized adult.

There are also the newer tubs with doors that I believe take up less floor space.

My wife wanted a soaker tub in our new house. I think it's only 48 inches. Now she hardly ever uses the thing because it's so deep and hard to get in and out of. Too bad - the damned thing cost $2K.

Thanks for all the help my wife wants a tub for the kids to take bath other wise I would just do a 48" shower my problem is the toilet it's in a very tight fit between shower and the wall there is currently a 5 ft tub now and going a bit smaller would solve the problem .

True, true, true. It also costs WAY more to do.
