Post wiper blades 2000 Land Yacht

Trying to find a TRICO or equivilant for the wiper blades on my 2000 Land Yacht 33' GAS unit.

Airstream says to use Trico blades number AW-B28TR

TRICO says to use

Type Part Number BLACK BLADE 68-281 TRICO REFILL 75-280 O E REFILL 75-280 WIPER ARMS 74-209
Has anyone successfully replaced their blades on a 2000 era Land Yacht and can give me some advice?

Couldn't find exact replacement so I took apart and rebuilt the old ones using std blades rubber. Only ones I could find were the slip on not the bolt type used.

I replaced my blades last summer with one's of similar length off the rack from O'Reillys Auto Parts (formerly Murray's). I had to drill out the holes a little to accomodate newer, longer stainless steel screws, because the original screws were not long enough. The width of the new blade was about a millimeter wider. Also, I treated the drilled out holes with rust inhibitor because there was bare metal showing after being drilled out.
