|Can I utilize PVC cabling under construction modular trailers that will be outdoors but elevated above the ground? This a temp solution that will be in place for five years|

As long as the cable is not running through a plenum space you should be fine. I do question if standard PVC cable will stand up to the weathering of being exposed but it might. You may want to use an OSP version of the cable for better durability. Last if there is any exposure to lighting, you may also want to consider "protectors".
