The Fiamma rafter is constructed of sturdy aluminum to keep the fabric in tension and eliminates water pooling and noisy flapping caused by wind.
Easy to install without damaging the awning. Delivered as standard with special wall clips for handy storage inside the vehicle. Complete with rubber ends so as to be installed on other awning brands.
This center support rafter only comes standard with Fiamma's 400 length awnings and longer, so customers wanting the 300 & 350 lengths need to purchase them separately.
Available in two versions:
LED version - The standard center support plus pre-installed LED lights. After drilling and installing the electrical connection to the van or RV, you can use the 5m of cable that is supplied and comes complete with a 12V cigarette lighter socket.
Both are compatible with Fiamma Awnings: F45s, F80s
A must for your awning. I use to use tie down rope on the awning to prevent it from flapping and lifting, even though I had the legs secured to the side of my van. This this bar, there is no need to do that anymore. The awning stays solid even when it gets windy. I definitely would recommend.
Got my ladder put on in the desert. It wasn’t arriving at my home in time for my adventure but no worries, they shipped it to where I was landing for a couple weeks! It is really sturdy and now I can get up and clean my solar but I am seriously pondering a fold down chair next to the air conditioner. It is a whole nother view up there! I have a Solis Pocket and I got the rack and awning and now ladder to complete my system! I guess it took about 7 hours for the rack due to operator error. The awning was about 3 hours to install and the ladder was maybe an hour all said and done. The friend that helped me said, “this is really top quality stuff”
I have been waiting patiently for my friend to help install my awning to the stealth rack on my Pocket. We got er done today and I love it. Definitely two people to install was best. Especially with a perfectionist and taking awning on and off a few times. Easy to open and close and feels solid on rack with the brackets I also ordered. Wish it went past my sliding door a bit further. May adjust down the road. I didn’t hear any noise driving with it on either! I love the low profile and It looks really nice. I have yet to use it but I am heading to the desert for February so happy to have it on! Thank Orion for being so accommodating. Your replies back to me always prompt! Absolutely love this company!
My husband and I are just starting out our first van build and installed this rack today! Instructions were easy to follow and as complete newbies reading instructions for the first time today it took us about 4 hours, with my husband doing a lot himself while I worked on something else intermittently.
The promaster stealth rack is a solid well constructed rig. The instructions were spot on and easy to follow, all parts are well wrapped and labeled so everything shows up in perfect condition and ready to go. As stated you can configure the cross bars to any layout you can dream up and there are plenty of add ons for what ever you can dream up to make your rig exactly the way you want it. If your looking for a rack for your van look no further this is best in class. Thanks Orion!
I went with OVG because I would have had to wait 2-3 months for another brand.
I'm glad I chose OVG.
The tech order, tech support, and install was FLAWLESS. The racks mount up exactly as per instructions, and the included hardware is solid high quality.
There are several additional advantages:
1. Better bottom mount - OVG uses a more clamp style mount for the lower seam.
2. The upper part mounts directly to 8020 rails and can be adjusted for slight variations.
3. The two piece design means the rack has more strength in the center - where the boards go. It also makes install easier.
OVG is the way to go!

I researched so many roof racks... and I mean SO many, ranging from budget to $6k+ options on the market. This rack was 100% the right decision for our Sprinter build. Incredibly easy to install, top-quality material, and thoughtful design. You can tell this was made for real, outdoor, rugged use. It took just a few hours to install (with 2 people) and it's solid after 2000+ miles on the road. If you're looking to get a rack that holds up and isn't the price of a new car, then get this one.
Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to write this review. You are giving us van envy over here! Great job on the build.
