32" Wiper Blade Replacements

My coach has J-hook wiper arms and I'd like to replace the 32" wipers with 28" wiper blades to save money and increase availability. The 28" blades I've found are all for a narrow (8mm?) arm. The J-hook on my arms is wider (12mm).

Has anyone found 28" blades for the wider arms?

You can buy them from Camping World I had 32 inch on my Bounder but I removed them and installed 28 inch ones to. I was having trouble with the arm breaking so I put smaller blades on no trouble since then.

In looking for a 28" wiper blade that would fit the wider arms on my coach, I was hoping to be able to purchase low cost blades that were readily available such as the Goodyear blades Costco had on sale last week at 2 for $8.

The blades suggested are almost as expensive as the 32" blades.

I sure would be great to find low cost blades!

As far as I have been able to find, the cheap ones don't exist for a wide J hook wiper arm. People will suggest a lot of sources for wiper blades but none that I've contacted had the wide J hook blades any cheaper than above.

Not without weakening the wiper arm, and not very easily.

I found the 32" tru Speedy Autoglass,32 inch for a 12mm wiper arm,not cheap but after a long search thats all we could find,still looking because the trico part# 67-324 are $ 65.00 per blade.to make the arm smaller and use the 28 inch would weaken the attachment point,so I am spending the big $$$

I ended up getting them direct from a Newmar dealer, something over $70 each and that was about 5 years ago. I still haven't put them on as water beads up and blows off the windshield so I very seldom use them. I use Dry Wash N Guard on the whole rig, including the glass. Most dirt and water just blow off.

No, I don't have a relationship with DWG anymore, I used to be a distributor but now just a very satisfied user.

Not a Camping World fan but they sell them for $32.95 each, Napa is twice this price for the same type blade.
