Floor Joist in old Mobile Home

I have a 1966 Windsor Mobile Home which i have been living in for 16 yrs now. I was previously my grandma's.

this trailer is 12 x 50somthing , 2 steel "eye" beams down the center.
im not sure what the joists are in the flooring, but im guessing 2x6.

currently i have had a queen waterbed in the rear end of the trailer which
covers both "eye" beams for the 16 yrs ive been living here and have
not had any problems with the weight.

now im planing to redo the bathroom with tile and new tub.
the tub will be on the exterior wall sided of the trailer and the
weight will be over the out riggers that are off the main "eye" beam
frame. the new tub will weight 600lbs with water. + my 145.
the tile will probably 100 or so lbs

would like your suggestions and if i should do anything with the current

your 'outriggers' should hold it just fine.
