I know of Newmar dealers that do just that. They work out the deal so you know what they are going to buy it back for or you can do a private sale.
It's really not that big a deal, plenty of US RV's over here (I'm sitting in one as I type).

The 26,000lbs is a bit of a pain, as experience tells me to buy a diesel and a quick look put them over this number

I guess I'm probably teaching you to suck eggs but you will of course need a class 2/LGV/HGV/C (or whatever they are calling it this month) license to drive anything over 7.5tonnes in the UK too, costs about £1k and needs a long weekend for course/test.

Got that box ticked, was a class 2 when I took it years ago, given up trying to keep up back home

All you need in addition to you country drivers license is an international driver license. You'll need to get insurance for the vehicle and the registration process is straight forward.

A farin national can drive any non-commercial vehicle he or she is allowed to drive in thire home country.

Please disregard the spelling mistakes.

As I said some states will let you do that but Oregon from what I can tell isn't one of them. However maybe that's only for US residents trying to full time where foreign nationals can.
