Straw Bales for Trailer insulation???

We currently live in a mobile home and last winter we had an awful time with our water pipes freezing up... Basically we were miserable...
Well we just got a new trailer and before we put the skirting on I was thinking it might be a good idea to put straw bales underneath it all the way around. Does anyone know of any pros or cons of this idea?? Or any other suggestions to keep the pipes from freezing?

The 4x8 sheet of foam are used for lathing and insulating houses. Is far is thickness you can get it up to a few feet thick if you want to order it. Are rabbit barn is cover with 2 inch thick foam and why we really don't have cold winter are summer are in the 100 and with a cool blowing it stay in the 80's or lower. Last week it was 114 here and you could feel the differences in temperature when you walked in the rabbit barn. G&S
