Default Portable jobsite router table alloy construction

Hello there
I am from the UK and am looking for a light weight but high quality portable router table that can be benchtop and on legs. I will be taking it to the jobsite and using it in my long thin work space at home, then storing it in my pallet racking on a night.
There seems to be lots of jobsite saws but not many router tables.
Any ideas ?

The Triton router table plus stand might do the job for you tbone, though I believe it's steel rather than alu.

Bosch makes a bench top table that isn't bad. I used to have a Skill brand bench top table, but the router mounting was not very stable.

I bought the Bosch table about a year ago. Didn't like it. The mounting plate won't stay level and the screws used to level the plate are dreadful. Perhaps just mount your router to the underside of some plywood (with or without an insert) and put it on some saw horses?
