Where to buy wiper blades?

I measured mine and they are 33 3/4" long and the local stores only carry up to 28". I even checked a few truck stops but no luck. This is for a '99 Southwind.

Take your existing blade to NAPA. They can look it up.

I have a Freightliner chassis, so I went to a Freightliner dealer and they had them in stock. On most motorhomes, the chassis manufacturer installs the wiper blades.

For our Bounder, only the rubber blades needed replaced, but all we could find at the local automotive stores (or even WM), were the entire arm assembly, running upwards of $25. The arm assembly was just fine so I didn't need the whole thing. I finally found replacement rubber that you cut to fit, at Advance Auto Parts for less than $7.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I ordered a new pair from NAPA and they arrived for $76 a pair

So I checked my EBAY and bought a case of 6 for $9.99 plus a few bucks for shipping

Napa wants $45 each. I'm going to try to find some to cut and just replace the blade only.

I just had to place the entire wiper blade assemblies on my Pace Arrow Vision. One blade flew off the RV after the screws holding it on the wiper arm had vibrated loose during a trip.

I found a site advertising Tru Vision wipers and followed the link back to the company's web site. Tru Vision provides a compatibility chart for all RVs.

I was then able to search the web for the best price on the TV6-26 model that I needed for my unit. At $26 each, it wasn't cheap but I could not find anyone locally that had something that would fit.

If I had seen these other posts sooner, I could have contacted a Fleetwood dealership to see how much they charge for a replacement wiper blade assembly.

I had the same problem finding reasonably priced replacements.

If your wipers are the type which attached to the arm with two screws, I found a local auto parts store that had the adapter to mate an "off-the-shelf" universal type replacement blade to my Bounder. Its interesting that none of the "big name" auto parts stores around here had it.

It is part # 48-17 made by ANCO. They cost about $8 for the pair and the wipers were about $8 each.

Ours are held on by one bolt. I found what I needed at a truck parts dealer (Ogburn Truck parts Fort Worth Texas). Had them in stock @ $32 ea. Way heavier than what was on there when I bought it and the new ones work GREAT!

The NAPA Store had a listing for my '01 37v Discovery (both wiper blade ass'y and refills).They were able to find a listing by model and year. I opted for the refills-$18/pr. compared to $37/ass'y. A minor problem to get them installed in the blade but 5 minutes and I was done.
safe travels
