I am currently replacing the subfloor of our bathroom in the mobile home that was built in 1980's. I ripped up the crappy particle board that was falling apart.

My main question is the way the heating works in the trailer is there are tubes that run hot water through the vent covers and heats up the trailer. Now I put 3/4 plywood but there won't be room for cement board and then grout and tile in the bathroom.

So finally my question is for a bathroom do you need cement board? Can I slap the grout on and tile but I'm worried about the moisture. Any suggestions?

your trailer has forced hot water heating? really?
or are those "tubes" water lines for the faucets?

or are those "tubes" actually flexible duct for hot air?

RedGard on the wood.
Epoxy on the floor.
FRP on the walls.

My thoughts exactly!

OP, you could use something Allure custom flooring (Home Depot) and lay it right over your subfloor - it's much warmer than tile and looks lovely.

I had some in my bathroom that looked like laminate wood flooring (but there are other choices - I love the "Corsica" one) and I had a friend's husband not believe me that it was virtually linoleum, he actually got down on the floor to examine and touch it before he believed me.
