Question Shower pan: to mortar or not

Hi All,
Going to be ripping out old shower stall and installing a Dreamline DL-6153 Shower stall kit. Have had a mix of contractors say that some would use mortar mix and some say no as long its attached to the studs. All opinions welcomed.

If your referring to installing with a mortar bed the instructions show that is a requirement.
