I was in a friend of a friend's trailer years ago who did a similar mod and I figured I'd mention it due to the comment about the curtain staying inside the shower pan area.
His mod consisted of something similar as far as the curtain rod goes but he also added a second one with a slightly tighter / less curve at the bottom that followed the curve of the shower pan. If I remember correctly, this lower one had a pivot on the one side at the wall bracket so you could lift it (almost like a lift gate) and clip it to the wall, out of the way, when it wasn't in use. (maybe a velco strap or something, I don't remember) When it was lowered for use, it dropped into a bracket on the opposite wall and the rod went on the outside
of the curtain, roughly 3-4 inches above the shower pan, just to keep the curtain inside and the water from spilling out in the event that an elbow (or something) accidently touched the side and moved the bottom of the curtain out of the shower. (thus spilling water all over the floor)
(EDIT) - he also wieghted the bottom of his curtain with a few fishing weights to help keep it from moving. It's all coming back to me now.
Essentially, all this did was keep the curtain tight at the bottom for drainage and "flared" at the top for elbow room. I recall seeing it and not taking much notice since I didn't have a trailer back then; but now I'm thinking "what a good idea that was".
I also remember looking at the bathroom and thinking "maybe you should remove the shower curtain and let the water clean this place" (He had the biggest cooler of icy beer outside and I was thirsty so I just kept my mouth shut)
