For tile installation, Schluter Shower Tray. You can get the tray or the kit which includes drain assembly and waterproof membrane.

My shower tray is a commercial GRP tray mounted on 4 4 x 2 lengths of wood and an 18mm ply sheet on the top of them.

Much depends on what sort of tray tyour looking at - They come with instructions.

I have set some thinner trays in concrete before.

The new ones I like are a special thin concrete composite with the drain pre-sloped in, you set them straight on the beams of the floor, and tile the surface. They can be cut to just what shape you want.

I must confess my now is 20 years old now but I did help put one in last year in a very similar way.

I think it's time for our shower to become a wet room.

That's what these trays are for I think. There are also variants for applying PVC flooring to.

I believe it's common practice to level the floor as much as possible first. Where is this in your house? Is it on a sub-floor or a slab? Have you gone to a store that sells shower trays and asked them?

Good idea to use a thinset concrete to level the surface so it can drain properly.

where are you in the world ? Your profile doesn't say, and a "good" US answer is useless for a UK answer.
