I mounted a couple of things in my shower. I just drilled small pilot holes and screwed the things to the wall. I "felt" the screws actually go into something solid (no, it wasn't wire or pipe either, lol) behind the plastic surround.

Another vote for the 3M command strips.

The brackets that hold a shower head on the wall are screwed in place with an ordinary screw. So the walls are obviously thick enough to hold a screw.

Not sure I'd want to add a screw into a shower wall, but if you plan on the holder being there "forever" it should work. You could always add a dab of epoxy to the threads for extra holding power.

The bracket for our shower head was coming loose. I found that whoever put the screw in over-tightened it and stripped out the hole in the fiberglass. I simply drilled a new hole next to the original one and carefully tightened the screw back in. Gets very little water spray up that high and wasn't worried about using anything to help seal the penetration.

I'm in the VHB school vs screws. I installed led strips under the coach 6 years ago with VHB. 50+K miles all around the country and still inplace. Get VHB rated for the weight you are considering and you'll be good.
