Shower Base Brands

We have a choice of 3 brands for a 60 x 48 acrylic shower base that is going in our bathroom remodel. This bathroom will be used by 3-4 children. Durability, safety (not too slippery) and ease of cleaning are our 3 priorities. I'm looking for any feedback, experience & knowledge anyone can share about these brands of shower bases:

1) MTI (Designer Collection)

2) Jacuzzi (Catalina)

3) Fleurco (ADQ Quad Base)

Also, we have the choice of a center drain or end drain. What are the pros / cons of each choice? If choosing end drain, should it be under the shower head or on the opposite side? The current drain is on the left side of the photo (2nd photo). The shower head / plumbing for shower head is being moved to the wall on the right side of the photo.

This particular shower is an odd shape due to the fact the bathroom is in the eve of a cape-cod style home. Shape of shower will be similar to the photo attached, just for reference.

Thank you for any feedback and help!
