2017 Vegas 24.1 Wiper Blades

We live in a rural area and can't seem to find wiper blades for our 2017 24.1 Vegas. I looked on Amazon and wasn't successful. Anyone have an idea of where I can get them? And, are the easy to install?

Thanks in advance.....

Just a slide clip to install.
No tools needed.
Take one off and go to a truck stop or cw.

Thanks. Both Truck Stop and CW are 1 1/2 to 2 hours away. Anywhere online i can find them. If not, I guess a trip is in my future.

I had a tough time online finding some.
I think, but am not sure, 2017 is unique to itself or a year before or after. There's a split somewhere in the years so the recommendation from a year other than yours needs weighed.

I have a new free set here for someone. They're the ones that DO NOT fit a 2018. I did not weigh my decision/their recommendation and just bought them(this is how I know of the year split and the wiper reconfiguration change)

Hopefully someone with a 2017 will give you an Amazon address to buy them.

My Ď17 has the large J hooks (not the small ones for automobiles).
So I ordered these: Trico 67-284 28"

I bought these based on a recommendation here.
They're in the mod box awaiting install.
I figured this would negate a potential problem on the road. I carry spare wipers but this was too inexpensive to not have a
'plan C'

You could always buy refills instead. You get the raw blade, and have to take the blade off, and put the metal supports in, if in fact you have those kind of blades.

My Tuscany has a large windshield and came with the 32 inch wipers

The w8 inch J hook style available at Walmart or MENARDS and all auto parts stores work fine

I order mine from Walmart.com. They arrived in just a couple of days in a box big enough to hold 20 wiper blades. Plenty of extra cardboard. When I installed them, the 28" was shorter than what I had on the RV. You probably need to make sure they are the heavy duty.

I might add: They were about $7 cheaper when I bought them.

I have a 2017 24.1 and the wipers measure 29Ē. I believe that Edís manual gave a model and sourcing info for those. Will need in the spring so will be following here and reaching out to his link as time draws near

The hook width is the problem, it's bigger than anything you will find at Walmart or a parts store. I was able to get a pair from Global Products, LLC, www.globalproducts.com. You have to phone it in, 833-WIPERS1 and their application guide on line is incorrect for the Vegas model you want the WT8-28 not the -10 that the guide refers to. Blades are 28" and work well.
