Best FR small class C to ship to S. Korea?

Howdy all!
My friend wants to bring a new 2014 small class C into S. Korea. It is for only him and his better half.
My guess is 25' maximum because of rear overhang dragging. Roads are ANYTHING but flat here.
I'm recommending diesel because gas is ~$8 a gallon here, but my friend is rich (literally) so that isn't a deal-killer.
What FR brand would you recommend?
My concern is more with the quality of the construction, and repairs/manufacturing defects. (I learned the hard way about that, but that's another story)
He is working with a dealer that imports a hundred or more HTTs, TTs, and Popups per year (mostly FR trailers), so getting repairs isn't a problem, and Mercedes Sprinters are common here. The big Fords aren't common here, so my leanings are towards MB...
So far I see Winnebago, Thor and Jayco at the top of the list based on other threads on other forums.
Which FR class C would everyone recommend?
Could you give me your opinions/recommendations and why?
Thanks!

For small diesel, look at the Solera. Built on Mercedes sprinter chassis. A couple of different floor plans. Check out the Solera sub forum under motorhomes for lots of info from owners. For gas, the Sunseeker 2300 is a great choice, available on a Chevy 4500 or Ford 450 chassis. Also a sub forum with lots of info.

The Solera was a choice he had asked about. Thanks!

We just returned from a trip to Ireland and saw a few "Caravans". What they call RV's over there. I was not able to check any parks for hookup info but since everything over there is 240v that maybe an issue for a North American RV. Also, back roads are very narrow. The Caravans are small that we saw on the roads and in the yards.

Do you know if S. Korea is 120 or 240?

Voltage in S. Korea is 220. Plugs have two round pegs like Germany, France, etc.

Besides the voltage, there may also be a difference in the propane fill connector. Not all countries use the same type as the US.

The guy has $$$$, so no worries about anything. All the LPG tanks are similar here, except they don't have the bleed valve.
I'll post pics when it gets here.

The FR Lexington would be an excellent fit for the type roads you'll find overseas.... Much more narrow that ours here in the states..... I had one before I upgraded to my diesel pusher class A and I loved it.... Has three slides and everything else you'd need for RVing over there.....
