Windshield Wiper Blades

I'm curious if anyone has done any sort of modification to the windshield wiper arms to accept current blades? I seem to be struggling to figure out a suitable replacement for my worn out blades. Thanks!

OE style wiper blades and arms are available for your style motorhome through NAPA

Thanks! I'll locate a NAPA, as they aren't available at either of my local parts places....

I search the NAPA online store and found two options for blades available but nothing listed for arms. Mill Supply (https://www.millsupply.com/stepvan-parts/wiper-parts/) still list most parts, but I haven't tried to actually order them so they may not be instock.

Sorry for the delay, but here is the part number for the Classic motorhome wiper blade. NAPA 60-2070, I bought them in 09/14, around 20 bucks each.

when I get a round tuit I'm going to machine a simple aluminum adapter block to accept the modern blades. Kind of a mute point now that they're available through napa. But I've already bought the blades.. sigh. Great info on the OEM blade source.

You can find the screw in adapters to accept "normal" blades found anywhere for $9 on amazon. Will post info when I get home to my real computer!

Hi. I still consider myself new and inexperienced with regard to the Airstream so I tend to observe from the sideline. I will be able to use the information so thanks. Has anyone looked into replacement motors and possible parallel action wiper assemblies?
