Tom you might try International Bus Parts, seems to me that I asked this question years ago about converting to electric wipers and was told they had a kit, around $700. to $900.

Send me your money, and I'll send you a set of "Custom built" just for you, wiper motors.

Motors is motors is motors.

Most of them have adjustments to limit the amount of swing and where they park.

If you really want some that are custom made, just for you, I'll be happy to send a standard wiper motor, (air or electric), out and have the engraved for you.

By the way, my prices aren't listed, because of the $50 limit. But if you want to send me 10 times that much, I won't holler!  Grin

Fred Hobe also sells an electric wiper kit. I don't remember the price, but it was much more reasonable than IBP.  Jack

Truck salvage yard, a set from a late model Winnebago or similar adapts easily to most applications. You should get the pair of motors and arms for $50 or less. There is no market for motorhome wiper motors. When the wrecked camper is stripped of useful/saleable parts, the wipers go to the scrap pile with the rest of the carcass.

Most regular school bus has separate motor for each large wiper.
I got them free from salvage unit…with bell crank & heavy shaft.

FWIW
