Does anyone know if a Dillon XL650 has a pre-manufactured stand that takes up very little room, yet keeps the press consistent and accurate? I have nowhere to mount my benches in this rental.

Are you talking about something like the "strong mount" or a bench to attach the entire unit to?

Bench, or more like a stand-alone mount.

I saw a Frankford Arsenal stand that claimed it would handle the RL550, but my 650 has the casefeed and thought that it would be unstable on such a small stand.

I use a Franford Arsenal. I have no problem with it. I use a Single Stage press on it though.

I got pics if you need them PM me.

Thanks for the tip... I was going to make a loading leaf for my kitchen table (obviously I'm once again a bachelor), but I realized that the RCBS would be mounted opposite of the Dillon, and I'd have nowhere to put the trimmer, powder measure, etc... but they are all mounted on 10" pieces of 2X4 so that I could swap them out on the bench to save space. The light bulb came on when you were saying that you have your single stage on the Frankford Arsenal stand. Problem solved. The Dillon WILL be in the loading leaf, the RCBS will have the FA. I was being narrow minded. Thanks again Eb1!!

If you are a Bachelor, there is always the kitchen counter,

That only works if you intend to remain a bachelor.

Try a microwave cart - they're small, fairly stable, easy to move around, and run around $100. They usually have plenty of room, and include shelving to store your toys.

I mounted my Rock Chucker on a dresser that my ex-wife left. She hated my guns, so I figured it was a perfect work bench for my reloading.
