Tru Vision wipers

Hi all,
My '09 Bounder has 32" Tru Vision wipers. Replacement blade assemblies from Tru Vision are about $40ea.(it appears the rubber portion only in the Tru Vision product can't be replaced).
Has anyone found a less expensive alternative from other wiper manufacturers? Or, has anyone been able to modify the Tru Vision wiper arm so it could accept more "standard" wiper blade replacements?
I think the only path to a more reasonable solution is to somehow "adapt" the Tru Vision wiper arm so it can accomodate the more common replacements, possibly in the 28" length. The Tru Vision wiper arm is too wide to accept most "standard" wiper replacements.

I have been unable to find blade refills anywhere. One friend installed 28" wipers by drilling out the mounting hole to fit the arm and says the 28" are adequate.

Step One: go to Walmart and find their least expensive brand...much less than $10 each but I cannot recall exactly.

Step Two: buy the longest one they have....will not be 32 inches but should be long enough to keep your windshield cleared during rain.

Step Three: Dremel out the rivet that prevents you from mounting your blade assembly to the axle bolt that Fleetwood uses.

Step Four: Mount the blade using the existing axle bolt and nuts. If you drop them and lose them, head to Ace Hardware and you will find them in the metric stainless steel fastener department.

Step Five: Take the $60 you saved and go buy something that you like.

I have the Walmart El-Cheapo running side by side with a Truvision Blade. The Walmart El-Cheapo actually does a better job even thought it is a bit shorter.

Step Six: Apply 303 regularly to your blades so that you do not have to replace them very often.
