And, as the man said earlier, fiberglass insulation just won't give you the R value in a six or eight inch space. You would have to have almost a ten inch thick space. I honestly have no idea how thick they make the ceilings and roofs in those trailers.

Radiant Barrier aluminum coating is used on solar board for housing. It at least cuts down on the radiation coming into the building or whatever you use that material on. It takes away some of the heat that's being ablated with the fiberglass insulation. Whatever it is they're advertising, you're probably going to want to take it with a grain of salt.

I used the decking with the tin foil on when I built our laundry room (barn style building attached to the house) as it was supposed to keep heat from building up in the loft part. I am not sure what "R" value it has. The loft part isn't otherwise insulated but the laundry room ceiling/walls are.

It works fantastic in my chicken condominium. The aluminum acts as a reflector, even though it's on the inside of the roofing. Cuts way down on the radiation coming through the roof. Your cell phone signal won't like it much, though.
But, the chickens don't care. They don't want to talk to anyone, anyway. Just me, and only me. And my wife. They like to talk to my wife. They just like to stand on my feet. And, get me to hold them, from time to time. They're very attached. And they like their cool atmosphere. That is all.

I have the same situation. I can't tell the difference, the stuff is too high off the floor.
