F53 Manual Costs

I googled Ford F53 1994 Service manuals and found some used ones for sale.

General Chassis Maintenance = $ 149.00
Powertrain Maintenance = $ 149.00
Electrical Troubleshooting & Diagrams = $ 169.00

All are paper and range from fair to good condition. They are the ones the Ford Dealer Mechanics use.

Do these prices seem reasonable? Or are there better ways to get the good service manuals?

I have access to Chilton's online manuals but I don't think they are as good as these. (Full Disclosure: I never have liked Chilton's online manual series. I find them hard to navigate and extremely difficult to find good troubleshooting info. But that is just me.)

I got a CD for my 1999 from Rock Auto, $20.
1999 Fleetwood Southwind 35S (Ford F53 6.8L V10 275hp 4R100 4 spd trans) - Toad 2003 Saturn Vue.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
