    Best to fit plastic one and stone will be too heavy. Plastic tray are better then stone trays also they are expensive than stone ones."

    "Depends on size and weight.
    I'd put more support struts underneath were you fitting it
    Generally the flooring would be ply with insulation sandwiched in between.Trouble is any movement and you'll get leaks."

    "Depends what floor is in mobile home but should be sufficient to take weight as it’s evenly spread the ideal minimum thickness is 18 mm board which it ought to be however if it needs elevating would need supporting evenly on battons of 3x2 evenly spaced"

    "A stone resin shower tray won’t be too heavy in my opinion, it all comes down to how well the support is underneath tray."
