You must be planning on bringing a lot of stuff. A mid-size is supposed to be big enough for 2 adults, 2 kids, plus 2 large suitcases and 2 small ones. A compact is still supposed to fit 2 adults and 2 kids, just less luggage. I brought a Transpack and a carry-on size rolling suitcase for a 10-day trip to Montana, plus a Sportube since I brought along my skis.
By the way, Travelocity has some good prices for car rentals. For instance, Thrifty has a $120/week rate if you let them pick the car . . . at least a compact. Just under $300 with all the taxes and fees for your 10-day trip. Look under Car Deals after doing a search.
