I know part of that has to do with fuel economy because gas prices are so cheap in our part of the world. But still, we don't seem very innovative when it comes to our camping rigs.
Here's a couple of interesting rigs we've seen in our travels...
Came across this neat little rig in the U.K.
This is a Romahome! Cool name! This has to be the tiniest motorhome ever. On a very fuel efficient Citroen chassis. Imagine being able to park anywhere and get 40 mpg. Might be a problem standing up inside, but the fuel economy would make up for any inconvenience. These guys have been manufacturing tiny motorhomes in the UK since 1982. This one that we came across is a mid 1990's model. The new ones look like this...

When we were in Namibia and South Africa, we also saw quite a few innovative looking camping rigs. We didn't see much in the way of motorhomes down there, but trailer camping is a big thing.
Here's a kind of a hybrid unit on a four wheel drive chassis.
How about this camping trailer! Talk about design and storage in a compact unit. Wow.
We were amazed in these countries at the amount of camping stuff available. In the capital city of Windhoek, Namibia we came across a modern camping warehouse that had many products I've never even seen in Canada.

We're really curious to see what they have for camping in South Korea. It's funny, but you don't really think of RV'ing to be a popular thing in Asia, but apparently it is in some areas.
One item I am never without when we're in our motorhome is our jump start battery pack. This heavy duty version has come in handy many times for us and it should be part of your emergency RV repair and maintenance kit. It's our Amazon.com deal of the day!
