Model # says 3N1TXCA2 .. so I guess its a 3 in 1 but is there a difference between the two ?

Reason is 
AcuRite 06031RM Replacement Wind Cups for 5-in-1 Weather Sensors is $7.00 locally
But AcuRite 06030RM Replacement Wind Cups for 3-in-1 Weather Sensors will end up costing me $20. (will have to order from AcuRite).

Is there a difference ?

They are different. They look the same, but the hole size for the cups to mount are different in size.

Be advised its not the same. The attachment piece is moulded differently.

Hello TLSRULZ,

You are correct, the units are not the same. If you have the 3in1 you will need the Wind Cups for a 3in1 because, as you stated, the mounting piece is different. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you and have a great day!

Thanks Rachell.. 

Do you have any idea if the Wind Cups for 3-in-1 Weather Sensor will be made available via Amazon Canada ?

The shipping to Canada is ridiculous from your website.

YES There is a difference in the 06030RM windcups for a 3n1, verses 06031RM windcups. As the hole size for the 3n1 is small, like 3/16". While the 5n1 uses a 5/16" shaft size. They will not interchange.

Hello Corny,

You are correct. These two models are not the same nor are they reversible.  If you have the 5in1 you cannot use the 3in1 wind cups. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.
