It looks like the rev-a-shelf type hinge (also Hafele), if it would work for an inset panel, would consume maybe 3/4" at each end of the panel vs 2" or 3" for the euro style. My panel is 18" wide, so not much space to begin with.
If I measure right at the top of my tip out panel to the sink bowl, the tray could only be about 1.5" deep, although this space increases the lower you go due to the rounded bowl.
The trays I see come in a few depths. The slimmest is about 1.75", and 2.125" or 3" is available. They really don't mount right at the top of the panel, and they slope down dramatically towards the rear. I don't think it would be a problem to modify an existing tray or take a router to the panel back for a bit more clearance. I do like the idea of using an existing plastic tray that can be removed & cleaned vs making a wooden one.
