Replace truck type wiper blades with car type

I am tired of paying so much for truck type wiper blades for my Calss-A when it seems clear that car type would work just as well and give me a lot more options of both brand and cost. Are there any adapters to make this work?

When I replaced the blades on our coach I went to Autozone and picked up a set of universal blades. I cut them to fit and they have been on the coach for 2 years. I think I paid around $20 for the set. You might give that idea a try.

It's called a J hook adapter.

I think I have found what I needed, Finally did a Google search for
"Windshield Wiper Blade Arm Adapter"
Which shows a variety of adapters to get from the truck type wipers to the "J" type which most cars use.
Thanks to all, and hopefully this might help someone else. The truck type wipers are dreadfully expensive, hard to find except by mail-order and I can see no advantage to them. Unless I am missing something...

I bought the re-fills ( $4.00 ) and used just the actual rubber wiper blade.
