Check out used tour busses. Ran into a family of 8 touring the country once while camping in Va, and they had bought a used tour bus sight unseen from a place out of Nashville. They are set up with beds/seats/tankage to handle it.

The OPs request is a tall order to fill. Desires bath and a half, king bed, and sleeps eight. To get all three will require a custom trailer, coach or bus. Nothing factory made will fit the bill due to limited market. All the best.

We used travel with 2 adults and 4 kids. We had a screen room that attached to the awning that the kids would set up when we arrived at the campground. The 2 older kids slept on cots that were set up in the screen room. We never had any issues with a campground not allowing us to do that.
When the largest family travels with you, you might think of a separate tent that can be set up on the site next to you. Or stay at campgrounds where you can rent a small camping cabin (KOAs).

Buy the Motorhome that most suits you and then figure out how to accommodate the kids. My 2 cents

Sounds like a very close Family and that's good! But, and i know my wife would agree, it would be a more pleasant experience, most likely for everyone, if your children were in an rv of their own. They could always rent if they didn't want to buy.

On sleeping 8, i don't think i've ever run across a class a that had that capacity. Might find something in a class c. Travel trailers definitely offer it with some models.

For the 4 married kids I'd have them get a room for the night. Take turns with the kids sleeping over with you. Very few RVers would travel the way you're planning. Good luck!

The most probable layout will be king bed, two bunks, a sleeping couch and a sleeping dinette....try this.

Are you buying this for your enjoyment or the kids? It sounds like a nightmare way of traveling very often and if it's a trip or two, have them get rooms.

Our motorhome rules:

Works for us.

Here's a thought to consider. How long do you plan to own the coach? What percentage of the time will you want to have eight people travel with you? After a few trips, how will everyone feel about continuing to travel that way. Would it be wiser to buy a motorhome that had the floor plan that fits the two of you and then make temporary sleeping arrangements for the extra people when needed like a tent or motel, or resort? We even removed the sleeper sofa and replaced it with a comfortable double recliner. When we need extra sleeping space, we have a comfortable queen air mattress for the floor, or a motel room. What if traveling with so many in close quarters turns out to be less enjoyable than you planned? You might be happier in the long run with a unit that was right for the majority of use it will get and adapt for the few times when needed. Just a thought.

I think we'll have a car follow and switch out inside the motorhome. One new motorhome has 9 seatbelts! Thanks for your input!

We camped near a nice family in Pagosa Springs, Colorado 2 years ago, they were pulling a travel trailer. They had 11 in their group and we're doing the west coast going back to Wisconsin. The MH was a 36-38' cross country (? Brand) and the trailer was about 16 ft hard side fold down. They had a suburban as their travel vehicle pulling a trailer full of scooters and bicycles. Oldest camper was in their 80's and youngest was around 4! Their campsite(s) 3 side by side and 1 in front. Tent for the kids and pop up awning for meals. Sweet setup for a mini family reunion.

The 2017 Winnebago Forza 38W model is exactly what you are asking about. It has optional bunk beds, optional over the seats drop down bed along with a couch and booth. So all together it can sleep 10. It also has two baths.

I saw the floor plan while looking at the new 2017 models and thought about this thread.
