I've been looking for a way to avoid paying Camping World $28 or so for each wiper blade replacement. Today I found a 24 inch refill at CarQuest that's a perfect match for the original wiper blades and only cost about $7 each!! It is CarQuest Part # 755-240. I had just about given up until I found this one. They had to order it from their warehouse but it arrived in less than a day...goes on like the original! Nice to save a buck on this Rig once in awhile, everything else costs too much!!

I tried to post the URL but it wouldn't take for some reason.. Here is how you can find it. Type in http://www.tricoproducts Under consumer replacement click online catalogs then click recreational vehicle. hope this helps

Good web site but maybe you missed my point. When I work through that site and look for "where sold", the only place listed (in Calif) is.......Camping World!! My original point was that I found another source for refills for the OEM Blades.....CarQuest.....and they only charge a little over $6 each. They are identical to the original blades and go in with no problem! Seems to me to be a lot cheaper than CW. Anyway, they are replaced now. I think I'll order a spare set...only $12 to do that. Probably the least expensive thing I've done to my coach.

FYI Horizon & Vectra windshield wiper blades.

NAPA has exact replacement wiper blade refills for the 24" blades used on the 04, 05, & 06 Vectra and Horizon and possibly other years. They are manufactured by TRICO and have the TRICO part number of 75-240. The NAPA part number is WIP602410. Price paid was $7.69 each.

The entire blade is TRICO part 68-241 and has the NAPA part number WIP602480. This may very well be the same refill that would fit Journeys and other models with 24" blades.
