Mobile home skirting advice please

My landlord asked me to replace the skirting on 3 of the mobiles he rents here & what's on there now looks like T1-11 siding or something similar.  I need to figure the materials & cost so I was looking at the different materials & nothing jumped out at me. Then I was looking at the cement board, Durarock 1/4" I think & that got me to wondering if  I could use the  11/32 x 4 x 8 rated cd Western Sheathing Board & paper & lath it & put on a scratch coat of cement? Will this warp? Is it to flimsy not to crack? Could I use the sheathing board with a primer for the scratch coat instead of paper & lath? That's my question. Thank you in advance for any advice or alternative suggestions.

Hi Garth.  You are looking for FRP( fiberglass reinforced panels).  It costs about $34.45 a sheet.  You can also get skirting from any mobilehome dealer.  I hope this helps.  Stukas
