I was told that you can use 2" polyethylene for insulating under a
mobile home .

the material is 2"x48"x96".

mobile home crawl space


Here is a link on conditioned crawl spaces. http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...ance-and-codes If you are talking about adding 2" foam, I'd assume the mobile home no longer has an intact belly board. You will want to seal in the foam somehow to keep out drafts and vapor. Great Stuff might work. Complete and properly vented skirting is important to conditioning the crawlspace under a mobile home as well. Exposed supply pipes should be wrapped with heat cable (not tape) and insulation.
