That's a lot of manual work when the thread has 300 pages, isn't it?
In my experience boards very rarely go "offline" these days - it may possibly have been a bigger problem in the days of phpBB 2.
Sorry I meant going offline forever. They simply disappear. For example some 10 years ago there was a host named eamped.com - all the forums on that website are gone.
I'm not using any host - paid or free.
Would have helped to have said that at the very beginning.
On the forums where I participate, I've got their permission to download those threads. I've found forums where the people are very happy to be able to make a backup of the forum for offline reading - they are also interested to to have such a backup, in case the forum disappears. Most of the time the users don't care if you make a backup containing their post or they are even happy to make such a backup.
I would suggest you read the T&Cs of the board before you post in that case as when posting on some boards you grant the board owner all rights to whatever you post/upload.
