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.
Purchased these optional awning brackets as preferred them over those that came with the awning. Very easy install, in my case using an electric rivet tool. Can see install on Vandingo…it’s a Youtube Short.
Thank you Orion for excellent shipping arrangements and packaging. This +13 footer arrived in great shape and after messing with install brackets required based on the roof rack chosen everything bolted up and operated beautifully. Thinking I may put another one on the other side of the van…maximum shade and comfort!
These are a must for adding the awning to the Stealth roof rack. Make attaching the awning simple and secure.
(My only negative comment is about the cost, but I’d still give them a five star rating)👍
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.
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.)
Like the Orion Roof Rack, the Fiamma Awning Brackets are a well designed and quality product and a must have to mount your awning to the roof rack.
After mounting the brackets to the Orion Roof Rack you have the opportunity to move the awning fore and aft to find the spot which will work for you when the awning is extended (easier with two sets of hands). We opted to position the awning would cover the sliding door opening when the awning was extended to help keep the sun and elements out of the van.
Overall we could not be happier with how smoothly the install of our awning went and the Orion Awning Brackets provides a seamless integration of the awning and roof rack and gives us peace of mind knowing the awning is secure to our van.
Highly recommend the Orion Awning Brackets.
Our Fiamma awning didn’t come with these surface brackets so I found them here at Orion. We have a FWC flatbed Hawk so we mounted the brackets to the flatbed tray and they work perfect. Keeps the awning legs off the ground and gives us room to move around. Regarding service—Thanks so much to Orion. Package showed up crunched with product missing. Customer Service took care of it and got me new brackets pronto. 👏🏽 We will be back to shop here for sure!
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!
If you have the stealth rack and are getting a Fiamma awning then I highly recommend these brackets. The way you can install and slide the brackets with ease into position.
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.
Lightweight, quiet and seamlessly follows the lines of the Sprinter! It's evident that this rack was meticulously designed for this vehicle and is not a 'one-size-fits-all' kind of a deal. Sprinters are lucky to have this as an option! Can't wait to dress it up with solar and a roof top oasis!
Matt and company have designed the perfect ladder to go along with their Stealth+ Roof Rack. It's top-notch quality and the aesthetic is supreme. It's easy to climb, easy to put together and our clients love the way it looks. We are 5-Star happy with the product!
We look forward to ordering more and continuing to share Orion products with our clients at Boho Camper Vans.
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.
Have only had our awning on one trip so far and we really like it, very solid. We're about to go out on the road for a month so I'll report back!
I bought this ladder to install on my DIY unistrut rack for my promaster. I had to make some custom mounting brackets but it was very simple to do so. The 2-piece ladder design is easy to put together and very rigid when mounted to the van. It's exactly what I wanted.
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.
Great addition to Stealth Rack. Easy access without impeding Rear door. Easy to install. Ideal distance from van side for use and easy cleaning behind. Well done by the Orion Team.
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.
I am extremely satisfied with my Orion Stealth Rack from the very carefully packed and wrapped parts to the easy step by step assembly directions to install it on my Promaster van. I required a rack that would be fully adjustable to fit the current roof components including Dometic air conditioning unit and solar panels! The Stealth worked out perfectly and will allow me to further adjust for all my river running gear including oars, kayaks, and related equipment! I wholeheartedly recommend Orion products to anyone considering a roof rack for their vehicle. 5 plus Stars and kudos to the Orion Company Crew !
