Depends on if you mean individual piers or pedestals under the critical support points - commonluy around 10-12 for your size unit, or if you mean a full perimeter foundation.

here are a couple of previous similar questions with answers which might help with that -

Generally, for a strip footing and concrete block perimeter foundation (and cross-pieces if needed by your frame, or center wall also as possibly needed with a 12 wide), I would expect about $20-35/LF in an area with shallow or no frost, up to as much as $35-50/LF in an area requiring full depth footers 4-5 feet deep. Perhaps about twice that for interior walls if you need crosswalls under the trailer as well. [If so, don't forget you need maintenance access and ventilation between the "rooms" of the foundation.]

Individual supporting piers meeting industryu standards (meaning not stacks of wood cribbing orpallets), depending again on footing depth required, can run from $100-300 each range for prefabricated ones to more in the $250-500 each ballpark for site-built ones - again can be more if have to be real deep due to frost penetation depth.

Note - if your system does not have tiedowns meeting federal lending agency requirements if might be a good time to have that done as part of the job, because federal lending and loan guarantee agencies require that for them to guarantee a loan - ditto to many other lenders as well now.
