Yeah, the NEC permits it, but your inspector may not. The IRC and IBC have some funny rules about that, and it all has to do with the foundation of the unit, and I don't claim to understand it.
A reasonable compromise, sometimes, is to drive a couple 4x4's right smack up against the mobile home and mount the service equipment to that.
