Mobile Home Insulation
The only major difference between a mobile home and a standard home as it relates to insulation is space. You do not have the luxury of space to apply massive insulation. A (0.2 inch, 5mm) or (0.4 inch, 10mm) thick Prodex roll is a perfect match for your house walls.
Comparing Prodex Total Insulation to Rigid Insulation Board, Spray Foam, Fiberglass and Cellulose
Spray Foam Insulation Won't Stop Radiant Heat Transfer
In addition to being very expensive, spray foam insulation won't prevent radiant heat transfer (the primary source of heat-flow in and out of your metal building, pole barn or house). Without a radiant barrier, when your roof gets hot it radiates solar-generated heat down. This often results in it being hotter in your building or house than out. It's also suggested you supplement open cell foam with a vapor barrier. Why not get the vapor barrier all in one product?
Rigid Insulation Board is Too Rigid for Basement Walls!
Rigid foam insulation board is rigid. Because it is inflexible, it does a poor job filling the gaps or cracks that may exist in your walls. As a result, you'll have air passage ways in and out of your home. Air traveling in an out will bring moisture with it. This can lead to a multitude of problems such as mold, mildew and rot. It also doesn't prevent radiant heat transfer.
