im woundering how it the best way to insulat a trailor house older style with alumiunum roof that has a seperate gable roof self supported closed in with good vents. i have striped the outside walls down to studs and sheathed it with osb 1/2 in tar paperd and used 12 in lp smart side. can i use closed cell on the bottom side of the trailor roof the cavity is only 5 in on side and 11 in middle or should I use open cell on everything since it would be sprayed on from the inside and put a plastic vapor barrier in. house is located in Oklahoma so mixed climate
