You may run into differences in the faucet center dimensions and the size of the pipes supplying the water. I haven't looked into changing the shower system yet, but would very much like to. There are more pressing issues right now.

Sticks and bricks has Moen tub-shower faucets. A shower-only version looks good. We've seen some Swedish (maybe German) ones (Hans Groehe) that are really handsome. We may look into adapting those to the MH. It all depends on the plumbing hot/cold pipe outlet center distances and the pipe sizes.

I just finished changing out the faucet in the kitchen. One strange thing; the connectors on the bottom of the faucet are unlike most I've come across in a house. And there where no valves to shut off the sink.

So I cut off the existing connectors and installed some BrassCraft PushConnect valves.

BrassCraft 1/2 in. NOM PushConnect x 3/8 in. OD Comp Outlet Chrome Plated Brass 1/4-Turn Angle Valve - G2PC19 C1 at The Home Depot

I also had to buy a 1-1/2" drill to drill a third hole in the counter. There was no center hole in the counter and the faucet I bought requires a center hole.

Two pictures below, before and after. The chrome one with the ruined finish is the before. The white pull-out faucet is the after.

Tub faucet replacement

How do you replace the garden tub faucet? There doesn't appear to be a way of removing it from the back, like a house faucet.

on mine, there is a screw in plug (4"?) on the outside (dry side) that allows access to it.

Thanks to all for your comments and suggestions. I'm a new guy about to head to the Gulf coast with the RV - first big trip. I'm going to post another question and invite your input - apologize for these newbie questions and I promise I do search around first! Thanks to all and drive safely!
