How about this one? http://www.amazon.com/Original-Water...Z1FS8FDEP7GXA7
Or this larger one? Amazon.com: Original Water Blade RV / Truck Bundle, 18 Inch Silicone T-Bar Squeegee with Pole Adapter: Automotive

I bought one of these at Home Depot for a little over $12 and put it on an extendable paint pole. The handle is threaded to accept just about any extension paint pole. It works great and is all in one. Lowes has a similar one with attached handle, but it's only 5' long.

This is about the best thing I can come up with. Wal-Mart does not have store pickup on it in my area, but I found it at another location (2nd link) for about the same price, including shipping! Anybody found anything better?

I use a water blade and an extendible painters pole as the strength and quality of the pole far exceeds the plastic one and the reach is longer as well.

I picked up a Boden BugBuster because it had a course scrub pad and extended to reach more windshield. The scrub pad noticeably cut my bug removal time as I hoped but is otherwise just a typical squeegee on a pole. The extended handle turned out to be strong enough to get the job done.

I bought a moderately cheap windshield scrub/squeegee on an extendable handle at WalMart. It easily reaches the top of my windshield I scrub the bugs off, squeegee the water and then wrap a microfiber cloth around the squeegee and easily dry the windshield & side windows. Works great.

Trade the class A in for a class C.. no squeegee needed..

The water blade is a great tool to dry a motorhome after washing it but for windsheilds it lacks the scrubber part

If you have the ability, or know someone who does, my best one was the windshield wiper blade. I made a small bracket to match the one on the end of the wiper arm and put on the back side of my windshield cleaner pole. Just unsnap from the wiper arm and put it on the pole.
