Table. Keyboard Tray. Ergonomic.

I'm looking for a sturdy table. Rectangular. Plain. About 28" high or so. Maybe something that folds up, or with legs that unscrew. And I'm looking for a sturdy height- and tilt-adjustable keyboard tray, wide enough to fit a mouse. Cheap. Simple. Together or separate. Got any advice?

I've got four or five desks at my disposal. All of them have drawers or blocks of wood where a keyboard tray could be attached.
I've looked online. Nothing I find is ergonomic. (The keyboard tray doesn't move, for example; or the desk is too high.) Or else it's niche ergonomic (and costs thousands). I see desks with funny shelf systems above them, and special cabinetry below them. Fake wood. "Fancy" hardware. Overly small trays. Weirdly shaped desks. No. No. No.
I just want a sturdy simple plain table, long enough to fit a couple of screens, some paper, a few files, maybe a book. Rectangular. About 28" high or so. Ideally, it could be taken apart for my next move. Ideally, it would already have a sturdy height- and tilt-adjustable keyboard tray wide enough to fit a mouse attached. But if it doesn't, I can find someone to attach one. The key is I need a good desk fast. My typing load just keeps increasing, and my current situation is makeshift, and unwise for the long term.
