Default New guy here, table/router compatibility ?

Very new here, and very new to routing.

I have an entry level Home Despot router, a Ryobi R163K. I'd like to get a benchtop table to use it in, but how do I determine bolt pattern/mounting compatibility?

I'm looking at a Bosch RA1181.

Thoughts, comments and suggestions welcomed!

The mounting plates for most tables can be drilled to fit any router. If your router doesn't fit the holes in the plate, just take the base plate off the router and use it as a pattern for the holes. Use double-sided tape to fasten it to the table plate and drill new holes.
