Windshield Wipers??

I need to replace the windshield wipers on my 06 Holiday Rambler. They are 28" long but the j hook that holds them on is wider than all the ones I've tried. I looked for them at truck dealers, auto parts stores, they don't have anything that wide. Most all are pretty stock size wise accept mine?? The last ones I bought from a RV dealer looked right but they bold on. I tried drilling mine out and using the holder off it and using that in the new wiper but the holder is to big:face palm: Any suggestion? They are Dyna wipers. Easy job, 5 mins.!! All afternoon and no new wipers! I'm hesitant to order online because of the size.

I bought a set of wipers at Menards-big box store last year. They bolt onto the arm instead of using a J hook like autos. There was an adapter in the package for the bolt fitting. I also found out DO NOT buy Rain-X, they are plastic and will break if a gust of wind hits the windshield just right.((oncoming semi + heavy rain). I always carry 2 spares. I've also bought from rockauto.com, but tried a repeat last week and didn't see any to fit.

Checkout these guys. Find your wiper arm and it will tell you want type of blade fits. then go the blade page.



I buy the longest I can at the autoparts store, then drill out the rivet holding the hook thing on, then enlarge the hole to fit my bolt on my arm. I do 2 sets at at time.

I found mine at RVPlus.com. They have the Tru Vision Brand that should fit.

Thanks all! I found them, the ones that came off were 28" but the spec was for 32", that was the difference in size and price. Back in business.
