Having a router extension wing on the table saw can serve three purposes. 1st is saving valued space in a small shop, 2nd is extra table width on the table saw for support when cutting wider boards, 3rd is extra space to set stuff on or working table space. The only disadvantage for this is the need to remove and reinstall the fence at times (if you don’t use the router a lot, only a extra minute to add or remove the fence). A separate dedicated router table is nice if you have the extra space. If you go the Benchtop route, you can clamp it to your work bench and remove it after the use of it. It does though cause a higher working height.

I have a Craftsman benchtop router table. When I made a workbench for along a wall, I made one section with a lowered drop to fit the benchtop table. Worked out rather nice for me. I decided to add a second router table via the router wing on the table saw for a extra router table.
