Windshield wiper blades

I need windshield wiper blades for my 2004 Pace arrow 37-C. The last ones I purchased were from Camping World and they sucked and were expensive. I used to buy them form a truck parts place and they were cheap and lasted. They changed hands and don't carry them anymore. Where do you get yours?

The last set I bought came from our local O'Reilly parts store four years ago and they still work decent.
Medium range quality. I think the were $12 or 14 or so a peice. I'm sure they would be $20 now the way things have been going up.

32" vs 28"

32" blades are what come on most class A motorhomes. When you go to Costco or Walmart or Autozone the largest size is 28". Turns our most people are satisfied with 28".and they are way cheaper.

I get my 28" wiper blades at Costco when they are on sale.

I purchased my 32 inch wiper blades on Amazon. I got TRICO brand and so far so good.

wiper blades

The problem is these blades mount with a bolt and lock nut. The blade fits into a "u" shaped bracket and through bolts to it. I will try to get a picture tomorrow.

Wal Mart. I don't worry too much about the length, I just need them to fit the arms. RV store will rip you off. Costco would be another good source. As to length, you need the wiper to clean where YOUR eyes are looking, 28, 30, or 32 inch, whatever works to clear the glass that you are looking through. The blades I buy are shorter than stock, no big deal, I'm not 7 foot tall.

Lakeman1, my MH also has the same type of fastener with a bolt and locknut. Mine are 26" and they are Trico 67-261. I got them off ebay but the price was around $44.00. A new bolt and nut came with them. Don't drop the lock nut in the gravel either.

I learned that you don't drop them in the grass either.

Our Windsor came with 32" wiper blades and I had a heck of a time finding them several years ago! I finally had O'Reilly's Auto Parts order them for me. They were exact replacements but pricey. I think I paid $39 each for them!

I plan to change to 28" next time! I don't think the missing 2" off each end will make much difference!

You might try AM Manufacturing, they’re an OEM supplier and sell direct to public via their website. I though the price was reasonable and they weren’t available on Amazon.

That's how mine mount too. The universal bracket included has a mounting hole to use the bolt N nut.
Remember to purchase metal, plastic doesn't hold up for me.

I like the Wiper Technologies blades. They are an OEM supplier I believe. They are also lighter and more aerodynamic than the bulky Tricos from CW I had before that would flutter in high winds. Looks like you need the WT6-26.
