Don't recall the length of the blades, but first time I replaced them a year or two ago, I got the replacements at Advance Auto Parts.

Last June, driving across Virginia in monsoon of rain, one wiper blade broke off and was thrown (lost). Found a Walmart a few miles down the road, picked up a replacement blade of same length that worked fine. Actually bought two of them while was there, so now keep a spare blade in case it ever 'throws' another one.

You can save a TON of $$ by just buying an appropriate sized wiper replacement from an auto part store or Walmart vs. getting an exact replacement from somewhere like Camping World that will rip you off.

I found and got mine from FIND IT PARTS....exact fit w/o any modifications. Easy breezy. Very helpful people as well. I like to keep things as 'stock as possible'!!

My blades are 32 1/2". I googled and Amazon offers 32" for 55 bucks. Is that a good price? Do I need 32" or 33"? Does it matter? Any additional recommendations?

Thank you

I've been getting them at AutoZone or AdvancedAuto and usually the cheapest, as they don't get used a lot and only last for awhile, before becoming hard and brittle anyway.
We've never had a problem finding replacements for the three coaches, that we've owned.

I paid less than ten dollars at a parts store in Decatur, Indiana, and about twenty at CW.
Just the blades an two metal strips per side. 28 inches. Looks like I could use larger ones but not sure they will fit the factory wiper blade holder arms.

I recently had to replace my wide saddle blades (DYNAs) and was looking at $45 each through Newmar, and about $60/pair on Amazon. Using Google, I stumbled across a bus supply store about 20 minutes from my office and got them for $40 shipped (didn't have time to get there before I needed them). Unityparts.com is the website for anyone who is interested. I recall they had a number of sizes - and no drilling once received!

I just replaced mine. Initial search turned up nothing but then I went with the old one to NAPA store and they matched them up for %20.00 (for the pair).

I sanded and repainted the arms and have a like new windshield wiper system.

Now, to add the new windshield washer system!
