Are cloadking devices available in Privateer or can I only get them in RF. I havent seen any so far. Also, were they available in the originial privateer because if they were i couldn't find them.

I haven't seen it in the shop, but it can be found.
SPOILER:
Visit "border" systems at the north-east edge of the map. Beyond Blockade Point Something - right now I don't remember which one - occasionally you'll find jumppoints to uncharted Kilrathi systems. One of them contains an asteroid that can be docked.
 
I believe that you have to finish Soren's mission branch of the side campaign to be able to get the Cloaking Device, but I don't know that for a fact. And yeah, it's a really cool piece of equipment. Makes intersystem travel a LOT safer if you aren't looking for a fight.

I was able to get it prior to starting any campaign. Makes the game too easy, except to travel through asteroid fields quickly when you simply want to go from Point A to Point B.
