Anybody like Navigators?

I'm investing in a tree business this summer and my F250 is going to be a full-time work truck. Wife and I go camping all summer long with the dogs so we're looking at something that can fill in that department where the Powerstroke did so well. She wants a Yukon, but since I have faith in Ford trucks I'm considering Navigator (first question: is the reliability of F-series in any way translated into the Navigator?)

Any testimonials on either? We wouldn't tow anything very heavy--just some dirtbikes or quads. I'm a little worried about off-road ground clearance as well.

Thanks!

They have Lincoln's God-awful air ride system. You literally couldn't give me a Navigator. Why not just get an F150?

I would get a Tahoe way before I got an expedition or navigator. I don't like the way the yukons look.

Get an expedition, like mentioned above, the air ride on the navi is junk. I have had both and we love our expedition, and you wouldn't believe the price difference on just general maintenance stuff.
