I guess I'm out of touch with young uns' expectatations nowadays, but when our firstborn was 10 months old, 32 years ago, we took a trip down the west coast of France from Roscoff and on to Santander to return home via Brittany Ferries.with one gran, in a bay-window VW Dormobile. Great holiday. As he and his younger brother grew older we found we stayed in one place longer, and that's what most kids will want - so weigh up if it's your urge to tour or theirs to stay by the beach which will be most important. However, whilst our younger one wants nothing to do with camping (except Glastonbury) the older one still likes motorhome touring hols.
Others have mentioned the need for seatbelts, not something we thought much about 30 years ago, and you are very likely to find with a Ģ10K budget, that few motorhomes have them. Some Euro m'homes do, but, chances are, no British ones, and it's not a matter for easy retro-fitting. It may well be that you'll find a camper-van with belts easier than a coachbuilt motorhome. With the former, if you think you might wish to stay a while on site, a drive-away awning is a useful asset to provide a larger space while camping.
Similarly I'd guess it's unlikely you'd find a camper with bunk beds within your budget as they've tended to be a relatively recent and mainly European van innovation.
