Mine mount with a bolt and nut, found the same size and drilled the hole out to accept the bolt. Off to S Dakota I went first good rain and good by modified wiper blades flew off the arms, replaced with the right ones for the motorhome and they are still working great. Bite the bullet and get the right ones, protect them from the sun and they'll last a long time

As I said, UP TO 28" you can get at automotive prices.
Over that the price seems to go up.

As others have noted, if you save the plastic thing that locks it in odds are the wal-mart/Auto-Store 28's will fit..

On mine I believe they used a bolt (or pin) and nut and I had to remove an existing pin and drill out the hole to make it fit mine.. But this is not as hard as it sounds... Worked great

But I have 28" and Im very happy about that.

Home is where I park it!

Windshield wiper adapter

I got 38" wipers at Wally World to replace the stock wipers. If I remember right, they were $11 each. They clear way more than I need. Heck, to use the stock wipers was a waste anyway. Who drives standing up?

Heck, just buy a set of 10" or 12". Save a couple more bucks .

Wiper replacements

I recently replaced the wiper blades on my 2000 Monaco Diplomat with Michelins from Walmart. There are three versatile adapters in with each blade assembly. They are 28" but I had rather have a good coating of Rain-x on the rest of the windshield since the blades actually cover a small portion of the actual glass area.

Longer isn't always better (OK...minds out of the gutter). I have a Kia Spectra SX that calls for a 32" blade on the driver side. Regardless of the brands I have tried, after a couple of months, it begins to chatter for sometime in a light rain. I'm considering going shorter with the blade in an attempt to stop the problem.
