I believe you will need to build a shower within the mobil home. The one piece units require a wall to be removed. By the time the unit is in place, all savings are gone.
Determine the size pan that will work. Some standard sixes are: 60x32, 54x34. 48x34
Walls can be done using laminate, cultured marble, or tile. You may even find some water resistant paneling that may work for a shower somewhere.
This would be a good time to replace the shower faucet with a pressure balanced one. More older people are injured by hot water than young people.
Consider installing blocking or support in the walls for future grab bars.
