My Monaco has the 32" blades. Got them at Amazon. The problem is they the rubber doesn't contact the glass very well. I think the 28" may be better.

I recently went through this with our MH. While I could find 32" wipers, they all had the wrong parts for connecting them to the wiper arms. So I opted to try some 28" wipers that fit the arms and so far they are working just fine. Another plus is that they are a LOT less expensive.

I went through the same problems of finding the long blades, but managed to find them at an RV parts dealer in Yuma. After seeing how they cover/don't cover the window, I am going to buy 28inch blades in the future.

Refills

I found refill wipers, just the rubber part, at Walmart. A bit of a PITA to thread them into the wiper but they work fine.

I, and many others I know, have changed to the 28" blades. I could find the 32" ones but the price was ridiculous. After changing to the 28" I have been a happy camper. They are actually much better at contacting the windshield, I can see just as well if not better. They last longer and don't have as much wind resistance - in other words, they stay on the windshield in the blowing wind and rain much better.
