You can download custom voices for some GPS. A friend had John Cleese's voice. Instead of "recalculating" it would say "I said turn HERE you IDIOT!"

I wish there was a newly discovered and plentyful domestic fuel source that was easily used in current technology engines.

And cheap satellite based 2 way voice and data - Like 4G for anywhere in the world...highlight on the word CHEAP, 'cuz I know it's already available, but it aint cheap.

Hover technology so tires wouldn't even be needed.
A power source like the one on the Delorean in Back to the Future that could make power for a week on 1 days worth of trash.

And if we still need tires, why can't they come up with some that don't need air and don't blow out or go flat? I am always amazed with the technological advances, that someone hasn't come up with a solid tire material that is actually functional on cars, trucks and RV's.

They always talk about "the person who invents a better mousetrap". I think the person who develops the "never mess with again tire" will be the multi-millionare.

A portable/built in outdoor kitchen. Made to cook like a pro. Think Wolf, DHS, Firemagic, SubZero. If Bobby Flay has a motorhome this is how he'd equip it. I love cooking on the weekend but can't bring my good cooking toys along. It simply isn't practical when my grill weighs over 300 lbs. We were recently shopping for a class A and I was trying to devise a way to add something like this in the basement. For now I carry a propane smoker with me. It's light weight and does a nice job. I have a family of 7 so the table top grills are limiting.

Actually Michelin came up with just such a design many years ago, shown below. I saw a video of a car doing some pretty aggressive test laps with the tires. Don't know why they never made it to market.
