Bathroom shower retro install

Have started on a retro shower install, in the 17' boler we purchased from friends this summer. bolers came with a shower bathroom combo. The trailer’s spec sheet shows water heater that was mounted under the sink and the bathroom stall with shower; even has the indents in bathroom mold for the drain.
The Shower drain was just finished yesterday. Had stall thickness small space plus vinyl flooring, 5/8" plywood, and 3/16" fiberglass sub floor. First got a pop up drain tub kit; then drilled 2” hole in stall from top to fit the drain top. The floor was too thick so had to cut away thickness from below of 3 1/8th wide in to floor up ½”. Mounted 3 1/8th saw with 2” hole saw in middle on arbour to drill up. Frame and gas line made it tight but drain job is done used a swivel trap; so it can be taken apart and it made it easier to line up with old pipe. All is within depth of the grey water system. So far so good.
Want to thank all of the members for info floor plans etc. that will make the job come together.

Nice project! I love having a shower. Haven't used it much but like the option of using it if needed.
