We are very happy with our Orion Roof Rack. Putting it together was a chore. We used both the paper directions and the YouTube video to get it correct. Install was a breeze. We are very happy with the look and strength of the rack. We should have ordered an extra cross bar when we made our initial purchase but now we know. Orion is sending us another rail and the solar panel brackets which look like they are going to make the solar panel install easy.
Incase you are wondering how the Promaster tows. It gets you there but it does not compare with a truck.
Great customer service.
The rack is awesome & arrived quickly.
It takes some time to install but the directions are easy to follow.
We wished we had added 2 extra cross bars with the original order. (Ended up ordering them after we installed which was fine.)
Digging everything about this company....great products and customer service!
Thank you Orion!
The Orion Team were so great to work with. Never tired of my emails and FaceTime calls. My roof was tricky due to a roof hatch I installed beforehand. The team worked tirelessly to help me make it fit!
Incredibly well thought out and very rugged. Self installed and the instructions are spot on….install is pretty easy if you fairly handy and I am very impressed with how solid it feels. Allow yourself some time and don’t rush the install.
Spent some time researching for a roof rack which would fit our Winnebago Solis Pocket and decided to contact Orion. By chance they had just completed a kit for the Solis Pocket and sent me pictures of the completed project the same day, impressive customer service. I called, again, and asked about an awning and the Orion team gave me some very good advice. I decided to add the Fiamma 45S and Stealth Awning Brackets and the Solar Panel Brackets to my order.
The products arrived and I was impressed with the quality of the Stealth Rack and Awning Brackets, the instructions and related videos; these were well documented and easy to follow. In addition to the design and quality of the products, Team Orion included Loctite and Anti-Seize in the package.
My wife and I installed the roof rack and relocated the solar panel over a weekend and my neighbor and I installed the Fiamma awning in a few hours and we were adventure ready.
At the end of the day, we could not be happier with our decision to go with the Orion Stealth Roof Rack and Fiamma 45S awning. The two (rack and awning) go together like peas and carrots, a super clean and functional set-up which has already proved to be effective for our camping needs.
Tips: Take some time to print and review the instructions and watch the installation videos before you get started. Pick up a “stick” of Loctite Anti-Seize compound for easier and cleaner application (you only need a small amount for each fastener). Use a small plastic tub to keep your tools and Loctite products in one place on the roof during the installation process. If possible, use two ladders and an extra set of hands, especially for the awning install.
We love the Promaster Stealth+ Roof Rack. It's designed perfectly to fit our fleet of vehicles at Boho Camper Vans. The rack looks sleek and cool, the quality is outstanding and the install directions are clear and straightforward.
Perhaps the best thing about our experience with Orion is the team. Matt and company are always available to answers questions when we need them and they're available to our clients as well. That's something hard to find and/or quantify.
We've already placed our first bulk order, and are gearing up to place our second. We look forward to a great relationship with Orion + Boho Camper Vans.
After getting a Winnebago Solis hard top (Promaster 3500 extended), I purchased the specially made stealth rack, first of its kind (revised). I was able to install it completely by myself. I love it. I had to make some changes to the way Winnebago set up the Solis roof (items blocking the roof track area), but once that was done it fit perfectly. I had numerous emails back and forth with Orion, to discuss the options and they were great. I don’t think I’ve ever had such personalized attention. Currently I’ve put a number of items onto the roof and plan some more refinements to increase solar, adjust storage and even have a little deck too.
I’m also going to add the ladder and awning to my rig in the near future.
We love the look of this roof rack + ladder. We were able to install this ourselves without having to drill into the roof of the van. Not needing to drill into the top of the van and being able to install ourselves was important to us. You really need two people to install this rack, would be difficult to install alone. I was able to call with any questions and spoke to a real person. No automated recording/ leaving messages. Huge perk! Also got a hand written note along with my package. Love the personal touch! The videos along with the written installation guide made install go smoothly. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone!
The Orion Van Gear Stealth+ Roof Rack comes carefully packed with bagged and wrapped parts, all clearly labelled. The easy step by step install directions come both in PDF and video form. (You can see in my attached video that I misinterpreted a bit.) While I did the entire install myself, two would make it faster, easier, and safer.
I required a rack that would be fully adjustable to provide the maximum roof space for solar panels and roof vent. The rack lets you mount the solar panels near with the top of the rack so they won't be shaded, yet stealthily won't see from the ground what you have up there.
I wholeheartedly recommend Orion Van Gear products to anyone considering a roof rack for their vehicle. The Orion Team periodically sent me emails to check in on progress and rapidly answered questions. Wonderful support!
I filmed the entire process, my errors included, without Orion Van Gear knowing; it is posted on my YouTube channel, RoadWhispers.
