Lightbulb Shower Flooring

I'm taking a slightly different approach for my bathroom. I ended up getting a 37 footer so I had extra room and decided to make the entire last 5 feet a wetroom. My showerhead will be on the right side while my toilet all the way on the left. I wanted plenty of room to be able to move around.

So, this calls for a large waterproof room, typical shower pans/shower sets will not cut it. I know a lot of people will use plywood as a base for the floor and walls and then use 3 coats of redguard to totally waterproof it, which I think is the approach I will take.

I have attached a photo of what I want to use for this floor, since a shower pan won't work. I plan on using it for the entire bathroom floor, not just the shower side. It's made for outside use so I don't think water will be an issue with it. But what do I put under it? Should I use cement, and if I do, or use something like it, or do I have to slant that material at all so the water goes into the drain?

I'm weary of using lenolium or vinyl because I've heard a lot of people have had trouble with making it stick. And I want to do tyle on the walls, but that's very expensive and will get heavy quickly. Plus the option that it could crack.

Any suggestions are welcome!

I don't know if it is typical in a bus, but I know you can get very large rubber flooring for larger showers in houses.

They're like a under coat of rubber mat that goes under tile for large walk in showers. I don't know the name of this, but they sell them at Home Depot.

That stuff just sits over your waterproof surface. I would recommend very steep slopes or that flooring will keep water under I let and turn to mildew.
