Default Which shower stall would you recommend?

We’re looking to install a single-piece, 48” shower stall. We need something with a base that does not flex (or flexes minimally) under 250 lbs. We are not interested in any type of tile.
Based on your experience:
• Which material is best: fiberglass, acrylic, gel-coated, other?
• Is there a particular brand that is better than the rest?
• Should we pour a concrete pad?
• I’d like to keep the price under $600 (excluding the door) if possible.

We had a solid base installed in a upstairs shower that weighed a good 150lbs. It does not flex!
