check out woodpeckers and benchdog for router table accessories- they have a lot of options.
A good mounting plate is important, a lift is a convenience.
make a good table top (nice laminate top) and fence- no need to buy them—you are a woodworker after all :)
and don’t forget to build dust collection port into the fence. The fence should have T-track for hold-downs and other accessories and the opening should be adjustable.
the table should also have T-track in it for both feather boards and a miter gauge—you can get a combo track for that.

I think the PC, Bosch and Triton routers all do well in tables—if you will not be hand holding this one consider a 3 hp router for the table. for hand use they are a bit heavy but in tables they are great.

good luck
