NAPA, Costco, Wal-Mart sometimes has them. You can find them all over the place. Now Tru-Vision might be a great brand, but the sun beating down on them eats them up. So when we are parked we keep covers over our wipers to help keep that in check. We got some which are close to the coach color at an FMCA rally in Salem, OR, but any FMCA rally might have several vendors who have them cheap. Good quality ones are made from Polypropylene I think.

Alpines with the two piece windshield I think take the 26-28" blades. I don't get them enough to remember the size, I keep one spare for the DS, and I then just buy another one when I use the spare, switching the old one to the passenger side. I don’t drive in rain enough to really worry about it. One Piece windshields may take a different size, of which I don't know because I don't have one of those models.

It would help a lot if the signature file showed the model and year of the subject MH so we know from that what we are advising you on, or making comments on.

For manufacturer other than Alpine, your comments most likely don’t do us a bit of good because we have what, an alpine model; they are different than any other brand. Generic stuff, like wiper blades may or may not work on our rigs. A 35" wiper blade won't work on a two piece windshield and not sure it will work on the one piece. Only the owner of one piece windshield model would know that either from measuring the blade in question or reading the owner’s manual provided they have one. I don’t know anything about tru-vision blades, and again, I choose to not drive in rain if I can avoid it. We have owned the coach for 5 years, I have driven in rain one time I remember and snow one time, and neither was pleasant.

FWIW-WRV went out of business in 08, and all the parts were sold at auction. This forum is our only source of assistance and help.

The two piece windshield blades are bolt on as well. Or at least my '04 wipers. And they are 28". I got the Trico 68-281 68 Series blades from Amazon.
