Shower redo

HI, I'm new at this but we've been doing a lot of painting and fixing since Ike hit in Sept. We've painted the whole house and my tub surrounds in both bathrooms look terribly yellowed now. Oh, I do live in a mobile home. I've been looking for some ideas on what I can replace or cover up the surrounds with. Big sheets of stuff would be the easiest so I could use whats up there now as my template. I saw Amy use some "sheets" of granite this morning on the show of a newly wed couple redoing their condo bathroom. But as usual when I go on the site I can't find what I'm looking for. I just need some suggestions.

Just get another surround. You will never get sheets to waterproof the area.
The surrounds I have looked at are either to big or to small and I'm afraid to cut them afraid of messing up the edge that seals. I have seen them use some solid sheet of something on bathroom renovations but never can quite catch the name of it. Very simple, which is what I need. Thank you for your reply.
If you can't modify something made for the space, what makes you think you can fabricate something that's not?
Finding the link to, "sheets of granite" will do you no good. You will not be able to do anything with granite as it is not DIY friendly.
If the bath tub is not a standard size, try searching for products from the trailer's manufacturer. It should fit like it was planned.
