Wiper mount adaptors??

I ordered some new wipers on Amazon and discovered that there is a whole different wiper mount out there.

My rig has 12mm "J" mounts wile my expensive and non-returnable wipers have a "saddle" mount.

Has anyone out there seen or used some kind of an adaptor to remedy this situation? I'd really like to use these wipers if I can.

THANKS!!

My new ones are saddle mount too. Had to buy a whole new wiper assembly since mine froze up. Opted to buy new heavy duty arms and blades. They are saddle mount as are the blades. Old units were J hooks. Bought the whole works direct from the manufacturer. I bet they have the adapters.

I can get any wipers anywhere ( auto parts, Walmart) and went from 32 to 28"

I have thought about dropping to a 28Ē too and next time I will. Costco/Walmart has them in stock always for half the price.

Those look really interesting. It would be great to be able to install any old wiper on my rig. But I don't think those would work in my situation. I will be making a trip to Camping World (as much as I hate going there) and see if they have any solutions. But I think this is a good suggestion and my solution will probably be along these lines.

My Itasca Horizon has 28 inch blades. Took one off, walked into Auto Zone. Choice of three brands.
Took Bosch micro edge. I liked the release style on the old one so I just snapped off from old and onto the new. Took longer to open packages than to install. 40.00 no fuss, no muss. Nice LOCAL guys at the store.
