Well for 7 homes

I am currently working on supplying water to a total of 7 singlewide mobile homes. 2 of the mobile homes are in place and located across the street from the well.
The 5 future homes will be located above the well as shown in the picture.
I am currently planning on running a 1 pvc line and two wires (to control pump) to the end of the road and then plan on placing qty 4 44gal pressure tanks at the top of the mtn. I plan on running 1 line and using ts to connect each future home to the main line.
I am also planning on replacing the current pump to ensure that it will be able to pump to the top of the mountain. I am currently unsure how deep the current well is.
What do you think about this set up. Any advice anyone can provide would be much appreciated.

None of the red notes in your photo are readable so I assume the well is located near the bottom of the hill in your photo. If so then I don't think you can supply water to all with the simple system you described because of the elevations. With zero water pressure at the top of the hill you'll have about 100 psi at the bottom just because of the weight. Trying to pump from the bottom and deliver usable water pressure at the top will require too high a pressure and you'll probably blow out the pipe not to mention that the pressure at the bottom of the hill will be way too much to feed to a mobile home.
