Question Manufactured Home and Ceramic Tile

We own a 2002 Palm Harbor Manufactured Home. When we bought it, the dealer told us that the floor would support ceramic tile in place of the lino in the future. I went to the local Home Depot and they said ceramic tile can't be installed in a manufactured home since it's not on a concrete foundation. I'm not sure what info you would need, but I do know the floor is OSB. Is this something that is possible??

Excuse my ignorance, never done anything like this before.

We install tile over "non-concrete" surfaces all the time; pier and beam homes included. Your case may be different depending on the deflection though. Stick frame houses have floor joists ratings that we can use to determine deflection.

I'm not familiar with the manufactured home specs but if you could provide the subfloor structure we can assist. Going over OSB is possible.

Good..Fast..Cheap. Pick any 2...can't have all three
