In the Ford display at SEMA 2010, there was a Transit Connect camper. While it needed some improvements to the layout, the idea of an American-branded, fuel-efficient "day trip"/overnight camper is long past due. The minimum features should include on-board toilet facilities, food preparation and storage (refrigerator, stove, microwave) and sleeping capacity for at least two adults (two adults and two kids would be even better).
A high-efficiency turbo diesel could make this an excellent special event and camping vehicle.
There are many mini-campers in Europe, but virtually none here. Conventional American RVs are too large, too expensive, and too fuel-thirsty. SUVs and CUVs are worthless for camping. An innovative small "camper van" could be an excellent way to expand Ford's "sustainable"l van sales . it would also help Ford promote fuel efficiency.
