Beaver 35" wiper blades

Measuring our 07 Beaver Patriot wiper blades I get 35 inches. Local RV store says they stock and can only get 32". Is there such a thing as a 35 inch blade / refill? Source?

Thanks in advance

When I replaced mine I bought the longest ones I could get at a Walmart. I don't think they make 30 inches, but I'll be down at the coach tomorrow and if I remember I'll measure them.

Point is that they clear plenty of windshield to see out of and the don't have the same tendency to lift off at higher speeds or in strong winds, which the long ones did.

They are 32 inches and that is the most common size for Monaco Class A motorhomes. You can use 28 inch blades if you purchase the correct frame to fit your existing arms. I have done that many times. You want notice much difference between the 32 inch and the 28 inch.

Measured mine yesterday. I'm using 28 inch blades. They work better than the longer ones because they don't lift in the wind.

So now I'm debating between what should be the correct looooong blade (about 35 inches)

BA900 TRU Vision 36 in. Heavy Duty RV Wiper Blade

And a much shorter one (28 ") that might not lift, or even a 32. Gonna estimate arc's on the wipe...

Thanks to all.

On some Monacos you have to consider more than the length of the blade. On my Dynasty the blades use a one inch wide saddle for the blade. Normal blades will not fit nor can they be adapted easily.

I just purchased the BA900 35 / 36 inch wiper from Diesel Equipment Company Heavy Duty Truck Replacement Parts Greensboro NC | Truck Trailer Parts Their price was 50% less than anyone else. Please call them before you purchase a shorter wiper at walmart for about the exact same $ as the real replacement.
