I am installing a one piece acrylic tub/shower. The nailing flange will be screwed onto the wall studs in the alcove I will frame. What is the best way to finish the interface between the drywall and the tub? I would like to run the wallboard over the nailing flange and butt up to the unit. However I am concerned that the joint between the acrylic and the drywall will crack if I fill it with mud. The manufacturer suggests using some trim here but I think it will look cheap and be difficult as the top corners are rounded. Has anyone had experience with his???

You will need to install the drywall with as close a fit as possible, and once you have finish taped and painted it you need to run a bead of good caulk all around the tub.
