Need to buy new wiper blades for the first time, what type are these?

I've never bought RV wiper blades before. Mine are 28', but I don't know what type of mount this is called. I'll attach some photos here, what am I looking for to replace these? And yes, I know they're rusty, that'll be taken care of at replacement!

That is the common mount used on older bus' and HDT's, it's called a saddle mount. Most wipers come with adapters for most mounting systems. The bolt N nut connection is the most common and most secure.FWIW I bought blades from rockauto.com; 28" blades for $4 ea. on closeout. Lookup by name and size not by vehicle.
I will never buy plastic blades again, they break in a hard rain on my MH.

replacements

One of mine broke right after I bought coach. My fault. Not as flexible as I had thought. Anyway. Miller truck supplies out of Cleveland area has them as cheap as I could find them. Good Luck.

Try Unity School Bus Parts. They stock all sizes and types of blades and arms @ reasonable prices.

I replaced mine with blades from Costco .

The Costco blades can be modified to fit in mins with the correct size drill bit .

Hopefully the rust isn't to the point where the bolt breaks as that's the part you need to install the blades .
The rivet head makes the universal beam blades too wide to fit the saddle , drilling the rivet out to fit the bolt and you're set to mount a MUCH cheaper and readily available blade .

In our case the Trico site had the wrong wipers listed. With 28" blades just drive the coach to the auto parts store and let them look at what you have. Most will replace them at no charge.
