I'm too tired to think of a quirky title

We're tired of sleeping on a twin sized futon mattress. Literally. Help us find a solution. Difficulty: Spiral stairs!
My wife and I are looking for some kind of bedding solution. Right now we’re sleeping on a twin sized futon mattress on a broken frame and that just won’t do anymore.
The problem is that our bedroom is on the second floor and we have a narrow spiral staircase so there’s no physical way for a queen sized mattress to fit upstairs. We also rent and we’re more than likely getting a new place in a year so we don't want to spent a lot of cash on what may end up being a temporary fix.
I see two possible solutions: upgrade to a queen sized futon mattress since it will be easier to move that up our stairs or get one of those mattress-in-a-box things (like this
one). Neither one of us wants to get a larger futon mattress so we’re seriously looking at a mattress-in-a-box but we don’t know anyone that has actually purchased one and the online reviews we’ve read seemed to boil down to “I thought a mattress-in-a-box would suck and it doesn’t suck!” which isn’t too helpful.
Does anyone here have any experiences with such a product and is it worth the money? Is there another option we haven’t considered?
*And yes, we’re fully aware that we probably won’t be able to get the bed out of the apartment once it expands.
