Man you said a mouthful there !
Mom and dad had a KampKold all aluminum cooler we took picnicing often It had a lip that supported a hinged aluminum tray not quite 1/2 way down the side. You could open either side to access items below.
(Mine in the pic above I have to lift the tray all the way out to access below)
The lid had 2 over center type latches [ EQUIPED WITH BOTTLE OPENERS ]on either end that latched the gasketed lid down tight and we very ofter used it for a seat and even a step stool. Try that on todays models.
I found a couple pics that show the supports and the folding tray........
