Exactly what I'd recommend, Andrew.

And when you make your mortar base, be sure to measure from the farthest point of the shower footprint to the drain when calculating your slope. The example Dan gave in post #12 is a bit shy of the actual minimum slope requirement of 1/4" per horizontal foot as the measurement from your drain to the far corner of your shower is a bit over two feet.

And, recycling from my post #2, even if you level your existing subfloor perfectly, I think you'll find you don't meet that requirement with the foam tray you currently have.

My opinion; worth price charged.
