Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !
The class 'C' motor home is the most popular type of rental and most likely best suited for your needs. You will find floor plans on each one if you look on a one of the main renters sites, such as El Monte or Cruise America. The layouts are pretty much the same from any company on like for like rentals and a 24/25ft class 'C' should be fine for your family but a 30ft will obviously offer a little more space.
You will need to have child seats and have the children strapped in during travel times, I am not sure if it is law in every state but it's common sense for your child's safety either way. You can find one family's experience here as well as a link to the RTA RV pages.
You will have a rear double bed and the Dinette table and bench folds into a sleeping area which will be enough to accommodate you all, although there is also a double bunk above the cab area [not suitable for the young ones].
If you need any other info regarding your trip just ask.
