clawfoot tub venting


We have a 40 year old moble home. I want to remove the old metal tub and replace it with a clawfoot. All the plumbing is in a wall that separates the exsiting tub and the toilet. The wall needs to come out for the clawfoot to fit. I can make the water piping and drain work, but the vent goes up through the wall to the roof. Question: Can I elminate the exsiting vent and vent the tub with it's overflow?

No, but can you relocate the vent to the wall behind the tub?
