Concern regarding tile bathroom

I have a major concern regarding the Tile bathroom. If it was done the same way as a regular home, the first step is tile backer board, then a shower pan, then concrete/mortar leveler to shape and create the correct slope to the drain, then the tile on the shower floor and walls.

I've never had this done with less than 500 pounds of materials in the smallest shower. Concrete backer board, mortar to level, mortar for tile, the weight of the ceramic or porcelain tile, and grout. Real tile is outrageously heavy. Add the additional framing used to support the concrete backer board, and you've a real situation that could cause the frame to bend and destroy the trailer.

There is a way to do faux tile with vinyl or other lightweight tile, adhesive mastic, etc. but I'd suggest the first step is to determine what type of tile work was done, and what the weight of the materials added to the bathroom added up to.
