Usually such mobile homes are built on two very strong steel beams. If you build a foundation under the section of beam where you plan to build the mass it can hold the weight. If you use the pebble style Paul is using the heat ducts in the floor can blow up though the mass and the furnace fan can circulate the heat to the ends of the long trailer. At leas that is the way it works on the one I have where the wood stove hearth is located over a heat outlet.
I my double wide the thermostat has a cool setting so I put it on automatic and cool and when the wood heat brings the room above 73 it turns on the circulator and moves the heat around but turns off when the room cools so that it is not moving cold air except in the summertime when I block the return and draw air from under the house.
