Well, if you want a futon that lasts for years, spend the xtra money and get the deluxe one. We bought a king size futon while I was still pregnant and used it until dd was 3 mos old and we moved to a furnished apt. I really loved it. We got the kind with the springs inside and foam around the outside. It was very comfy and what I loved was that I wasn't disturbed by DH moving around at night. I did find after a few months that there were "indentations" where we each slept. The futon stuffing does tend to flatten after a while, so I recommend getting a futon with the least amount of "batting", more springs and foam if you want it to last longer. We paid about $300 for ours but there were one or two models higher. We just knew we wouldn't have it for long so we didn't go all out.
As for the frame, we got an assemble-it-yourself pine platform frame for $200 from one of those unfinished furniture places. It looked fine and was very durable and comfy. I didn't bother staining it, again b/c it was temporary for us, but you could do a nice finish if you were so inclined. It wasn't too high off the floor either.
