I suspect it would work, but I'd have 2 concerns:

1. The plexiglass cracks pretty easy (drill the holes carefully), and I'd be concerned that when that rivet "pops" it would crack the plexiglass.

2. Don't know if the rivets come in stainless steel. If not, I'd be thinking about rust. There's basically a hole left in the rivet that will gather water.

I thought about the cracking too, so I might put some sort of washer between the rivet and the plexiglass. I use rivets to attach things on my fishing kayak and that has been in both fresh and saltwater with no signs of rust so I think it will be ok, but a drop of caulk in the hole wouldn't hurt either.

I'm guessing that you get the plexiglass custom cut from a local shop?

I just went to Home Depot and bought a piece, then measured the cabinet wall and cut the plexiglass myself. Cut carefully. I had to do mine twice due to cracking. Also suggest you make a paper template first. I made an assumption (you know what those do!) that the bottom inside corner was square, so I was a bit off on the final install. It wasn't very much and the caulk I put at the inside wall and bottom seams covered it.

And with the extra plexiglass, you can do this so you can see your auto swapover regulator:

I would think the caulking where the PG meets the wall and shower base would be enough in these areas to keep it secure. I would try it with only one SS screw in the upper corner. A finish washer will have a bit of give to it, so if you just hand tighten the screw with the finish washer, you should be able to do it without cracking it. Another option is to just put a small dab of clear silicon in place of the screw. That should be enough to hold it.

had the exact same issue with my Roo. Water will leak from the sides of the shower onto the floor. I thought it was the tub leaking from underneath at first. Even when trying to be careful, I would end up with water on the floor. Showers just aren't enjoyable when you're being too cautious. Instead of tub deflectors, I've used clamps the hold the shower curtains to the wall while I'm in it. Seems to work pretty well.

Even with my PG and shield, I'd be interested in clamps. Where'd you get them?

Here is what I did. I bought the plastic weather stripping for the bottom of an exterior door $3 at menards. I flipped it upside down and attrached it to the top of the shower base . Then I used clear silicone between the top of the shower base and the stripping. I also added silicone were the stripping meets the sink cabinet. I works really well! Click image for larger version

Need pics of the installation.

Here is what it looks like. Very simple peel, stick and caulk. My wife said it looks like part of the camper .
