I have a mobile home and want to replace plumbing, should I consider Pex as my best bet cost wise and performance wide?

I want to have a home that is as green as possible, but plumbing choices are few. Also will Pex be durable as long as it is out of sunlight? Is water pressure an issue?

Either PEX or copper will work fine. Either type of tubing can easily handle typical residential water pressures.
