In such a situation (flat layer 2 links between all systems) I would
prefer an VRRP(-E) setup on your side if your gear support this feature.
That should be much easier for you and the client/customer because it
usually works even with dumb gear on the remote end and do not need a
special configuration on that side.

The only drawback with an VRRP setup I could imagine is that the client
can't use/saturate both links simultaneous in an easy way.
