I just recently finished installing the new rack with ladder and, the quality has been excellent. Everything fit together without any issues and installation was very easy without requiring equipment such as hoist/forklift, unlike the rack on my other Promaster.
I purchased this rack so that I would have the flexibility to configure the rack as needed for fans and solar. Thanks to its extruded aluminum design, this rack in infinitely configurable. My next big purchase will be a Fiamma f45 awning and lighting for the new rack.
Received as part of their amazing contest last year. Communication is top notch, some of the fastest responses from any company I have ever dealt with. Quality is second to none. Thanks to everyone at company!
Love my Stealth Rack and it looks great on my Promaster 1500. Custom built for my van I was able to install it simply. Love the look and love the usability and ability to simply customize.
I worked in a military spec industry a while ago and became used to certain fastening methods since, if for no other reason that if they didn't fall off of fighter aircraft they probably wouldn't fall off of my vehicles.
I was pleasantly surprised when I received the Promaster159 Stealth+ rack and read through the instructions, realizing that at least one engineer who designed the Stealth+ rack had a GMP if not mil spec background. Makes quite a difference for tolerances all around.
Putting the rack together was easier than expected, and as long as you didn't tighten everything fully as you went along, waiting to torque everything at the end, the final fit expertly contoured to the roof of the Promaster.
The versatility of this rack is quite understated, and if you peruse the 80/20 applications website you will see for yourself. I have been using 80/20 extrusions in my work life for decades, for scientific instrument frames, and at home for kayak and bike racks and trailers. Stealth+ would apply to any industrial application such as TV/Radio remotes, not just RVs.
I am going at my roof rack in stages, trying to combine racing kayak (21' carbon kevlar) mounts with the ability to have a partial deck, and possibly a solar panel. My wife is almost over the initial shock of such an investment for a roof rack when so many other parts of the van project need to be addressed, but she also sees how versatile the use of roof space becomes, andBill has already been able to make her own comparisons to some of our friends with other racks which she has describe as "flimsy looking". Yeah, the Stealth+ does present well and exudes "robust"!
It was just like you said. The order came. My wife and I set up the assembly operation by watching videos and reading the directions. The Roof Rack went together well and we used it right away. Funny thing on our trip to the Columbia River a gal named Jennifer flagged us down and asked if she could take a picture of our Orion rack. She said that she was one of the first to have the rack on her Sprinter. Ours is a Ram Promaster but she was just so excited and wanted to know how we loved it. Thanks Orion for a quality product.
Great quality. Did the entire install by myself. Used Youtube clips to see bigger picture install.
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!

This roof rack and company is top notch. From a fast delivery (across the border to Canada), to quality materials and an ingenious build. The design is sleek, hides everything on the roof, and I get compliments on it everywhere I go. If I build another van I will definitely be getting this roof rack again.
