    the window wipers on my Rapido look a bit small especially for drivers side and middle are all 3 the same size or are yours different sizes.... I'm going to get some new flexy blade type ones and want to get the right sizes...
    Thanks

    if the same as our Hymer the wipers are still from the original Mercedes Sprinter base vehicle so will probably only sweep the lower part of the windscreen, there is no real need to go higher

    All three of ours are the same length

    Mine are all the same size ,but I think there should be two large and a smaller one on the passenger side if you use the correct ones of which I know not . I think I should have changed mine and used them as a copy but sadly my small one was the first to disappear on a motorway somewhere in France.But the three I use work well lol.

    Just replaced my three 22" cost of £4 each from our local cheap shop. They only last a year usually but if theres frost the expensive ones don't last much longer.

    And I reckon that bacon was a tad overdone too. Mind you we can't have bacon like that as all the fat has to be cut off before grilling (diktat from Slimmers world), if the fat was cut off yours there wouldn't be much left.
