Don't do it.  No value to a purchaser in mobile home.  Carpet or sheet flooring will do well as an investment if existing flooring is bad.

There are mobile homes and there are manufactured homes.  I think if it's not in a park and appears to be a reasonably sound permanent structure go for it.  Otherwise it would probably be an overimprovement.  
Maybe look at it from a ratio perspective.  If it's a 6k singlewide you wouldn't put 6k worth of flooring in it.  Maybe 5-10% of the value of the property should be put into flooring probably tending more to the low end.  Just shooting from the hip here.

Typically, average mobile home, No.
Most mobile homes are cheap material, cheap
construction techniques.  Laminate might be a
better solution.  Most mobile homes do not
have a rigid, solid floor to attach hardwood to.
Flexing might be a problem too.

I can't help thinking that someone buying a mobile home isn't expecting hardwood flooring and won't pay xtra for it.

Maybe, but you always need to make sure that you don't overimprove the property. Hanging a $3000 light fixture in a mobile home will not necessarily bring $3000 more in the sales price. Like a hardwood floor, it may help your home sell faster, but the price still must be within range for your buyer even after the cost of the improvements.

It may help. Making the home acceptable for FHA financing may be expensive, but it will make the biggest difference when selling.

Replacing or remodeling such as the hardwood floors will help. The quality of the work and materials you use will be important.
