$140 mud shower floor?

I recently went into our local tile shop (Kerdi Supplier) and he quoted me $140 for a 2-part supply of mud for my 32" x 60" shower floor. He even said he was giving me a deal. The system looked like a 5 gallon pail and 6 bags of cement. Is he out to lunch?
I thought the mud floor would be cheaper than a Kerdi prefab floor pan.
What mud would you recommend to form the floor pan?

Hi Brad, welcome. I think he's trying to take you for a ride. We use deckmud or dry pack, same thing. Normally about 5 parts of sand to 1 part portland cement. Sand mix from HD will work but most will add some play sand with it since it comes about 3 to 1. The liberry shows this, look in shower construction.
