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 !
Very impressed with everything about this purchase. Great customer service from the Orion team. They needed to verify some measurements for my Solis Pocket configuration and they were on it in every way. once the rack arrived, the packaging was a step above. It arrived in perfect condition because it was packaged incredibly well. Once opened, assembled and installed, it all went flawlessly. Fit and finish was beyond expectation. Very solid company and product. you can see the attention to pride, quality, & detail that the team puts into the product. It is not the least expensive, but it is the best of the best and worth the extra cost.
We've installed a number of other modular roof racks, but the Orion rack is the best by far. The rack looks great, fits the Promaster like a glove, has the built-in versatility of the 8020 strut system--and most importantly--a very comprehensive set of assembly instructions! Like any modular rack, it takes a little time and preparation to install, but the results are top notch, and the process relatively painless. Thanks to Orion for producing a great product!
I love my Orion products. I get compliments on them all the time. Very well made and the customer service is unbeatable.
This rack lives up to the hype! It looks amazing and things went together well. The install would be easier if this was installed on a new van. I had to remove all of my old hardware and solar panels it took 2 people to bring everything off the roof. Having someone to help will make the install easier and safer. I did order the solar brackets for each panel but mounting them separately didn't make sense as there would be a gap between the panels. As you can see in the video, I mounted the panels on an aluminum L channel with 4 solar brackets per side. Even with the added height adding the rail the panels still sit flush with the rack. Remember to apply the included anti-seize on all your bolts as instructed! I didn't add the anti seize to the carriage mounting bolts and I galled one of them. If I get a chance I'll post photos later, but the YouTube video has everything.
Nice weekend project. Easy to follow instructions. Very well designed, great fitment. Spendy but so worth every dollar.
Orion's support is fabulous, they responded to my emails within an hour, and to chat services on their support page immediately. Their instructions for assembly are nicely detailed, clear, and easy to follow. Their packaging for shipping excellent. Everything was nicely wrapped so the order arrived in pristine condition. The parts were meticulously labeled. I’d say these people are perfectionists in what they do, and I, as their customer and consumer of their products greatly appreciated their attention to details.
