Kathie,

Assuming (always dangerous) your '91 GV takes the same size blade as our '93 GV, one linked below is what I use on our coach.  Fits perfect.

You can probably find it locally if you don't want to order it.  Shop around for best price.

Good Lord my 89 has wimpy 17" blades, might be able to "clock" them and get a couple of more inches without changing the linkage length. Protech modified his somehow.

Yes. I drilled my arm for a 3/16 Mil spec  cross bolt and fit off the shelf blades.

I replaced my wiper arms on my 91 with these J Hook style.  20" blades are what was used.  Here is a link to my thread

Now here is another part number you should add to your ever growing list of necessary part numbers for future reference.
Take a walk around the storage area, after you get your new blades, and look for a new set of the same size blades
Might I also...

The 91 is a narrow body coach and has shorter windshields. 24" blades will not fit. I replaced my wiper arms to get rid of the bolt/screw on blades. With the J Hook style you can buy blades at any...

20 looks like the correct length for my narrow body 89, mine aren't bolt on or the j hook. Type 1 pinch tabs maybe. Black plastic shaft cover is failing.

Thats great knowing this,
My Blades actually hit the centre column and they cant be shortened or adjusted,
I was wondering how to adjust them to avoid hitting the centre column,
Just put shorter arms or blades on, Easy Peasy,

Good to hear from you  Mr B3, glad you're still alive and kicking. Because it's been a while This guy shipped a GV to Australia after a right hand drive conversion plus a left entrance door. Quite interesting adventure and project say the least.

You can use longer blades up to about  20 inches and clock them so they don't hit.

We replaced the wiper blades on our '92 U225 with Trico 20 inch (20-1) blades. A perfect fit.
