That's a really tough one as mobile homes are cheap in so many ways. The only thing I can think of is crawl under it and look at the metal framing to see if you can frame a new sunken area for it. Cut out the floor, weld in some new framing, then go.
I want to avoid a sunken floor, at all cost. It's not in the budget. The existing framing looks ok so my plan is to laminate additional joist to keep deflection in check. I can run 2 layers of plywood on the main floor area to further stiffen it up. The shower area is what I'm trying to figure out. I know there are structural sloped kits that allow securing to the joist, or I could run a single layer of plywood beneath it(preferred) and be 3/4 below the main floor. I haven't worked with any of the curbless kits before, I know there are several out available. Just not sure which products offer the best performance, value, difficulty of install, etc. This client was referred by a county agency that provided a grant to remodel for her son. That's the only reason why I'm considering it. Her son is only 7, but eventually she won't be able to lift him in/out of the tub as he grows. Another client of mine went through a similar situation, however, it took them years to be approved. They couldn't lift her into the tub so they had to sponge bath her for years until they got the shower. I don't want this mother to endure the same challenges.
