Always check and see what the roofing manufacturer approves as a substrate. However, that said, I believe most companies have tested their products on plywood but will tell you OSB is okay. Due to possible moisture and condensation issues in a cabin, I would tend toward plywood and, of urse, an appropriate underlaymeenton top of that. Good attic ventilation is a good idea.
