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.
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. We are thrilled to hear that you had such a positive experience with our roof rack and that it exceeded your expectations in terms of quality and ease of installation. We take pride in creating products that are made to withstand rugged use, and we are glad to see that it has held up well for you. We appreciate your support and are glad to have been able to meet your needs. If you have any questions or need any assistance in the future, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Best regards, Team Orion
The sleek look and versatility of the Orion Stealth rack make it ideal for my Sprinter. I like that they use 80/20 components as it makes it easy to attach what I need or reconfigure the rack.
Versitile and premium look.
The roof rack and solar panels were easily installed a good design for something that is not one piece. The awning was a little aggravating because of the shape of the van.
I have a 2022 3500XD 4x4 170 standard length that installed the Orion Van Gear roof rack with the Fiama F45S awning. I received my shipments withing the lead times quoted. The Fiama awning I believe was a direct shipment. One of the rails was bent in transit. I called Orion and no problem they had a replacement sent out. We laid everything out in the shipment, printed the instructions and began the install. The instructions are good. The couple times we made errors was because I misread or skipped a step. The roof rack is very high quality, good paint and precision cuts. The awning appears to be of high quality as well. Very high level of customer service as well!
Originally, I was not going to install a roof rack due to weight, cost, difficulty to install, or not suitable for my large solar panel. Then I found this Orion Rack and knew it would be perfect on my 170 Sprinter. While it would have been faster with a second person, I was able to install the rack by myself because it comes in multiple pieces. Each piece is installed separately and then joined to the others with heavy-duty brackets. Very solid! Fit and finish were precise -- all holes lined up exactly which was greatly appreciated. Instructions were clear. Looks great -- I couldn't be happier with the end result.
Finally, I need to complement the guys at Orion. I asked several questions about the rack during installation, and they answered super fast each time!
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!
