ANCO 32 inch wiper blades

Going nuts here trying to find replacements for my 2015 Winnebago Vista 36Y.
It seems everyone in the world has 28 ", but no 32 . Other manufacturers 32 " out there, but I have to change mounting hardware. All ideas appreciated.

Leaving NE in a few day for a long trip and one blade is torn.
Was thinking of just going with 28".

Thank-you in advance.

I found the longer blades on sites that sell wiper blades for boats and yachts. Beyond 28" they get expensive. Good luck.

OEM was 32". I switched to 28" years ago and don't notice any loss of coverage from the drivers position. Much easier to find and much cheaper.

I gave up the two inches at the top and the two inches at the bottom twelve years ago and never missed them.

Like others I switched to 28 inches with no problem. I buy them at Walmart for around $8 each - change them a few times a year at that price.

Not only will you be just fine with28" but your wiper motor will be better off plus there will be less tendency to lift, especially withe the "aerodynamic" blades.

That's good to know. Just ordered new ones from amazon and know I know I can replace them 3x for what the 32" ones cost! Thank you.

I agree with everybody else and especially agree with BigBadDad in that it will be much less stress on the motor to go with the 28" blade. However, if you just HAVE to have the 32" OEM Anco blade, you can still order it from Amazon at a pretty hefty price, $35.18. It's a direct buy from Amazon. Other online retailers sell it for a bit less but may charge high shipping. The part number is Anco 50-32.

We would gladly switch to 28" but the "J" hooks are too small and there is no adapter. I have found them on a school bus site but am seriously considering changing the arm to a standard size.
