L2TPv3 vs DLSW for Bridging VLANs

I'm currently using DLSW to bridge  a VLAN to a remote site and it works fine.  I've been reading up on  L2TPv3 and now I'm wondering if one is better than the other for my  purposes (my hardware will support both), especially if multiple VLANS  are being bridged to the remote site. 

We do not have an MPLS infrastructure, so that's not an option.

Thanks.

If it's not broken don't fix it......in my opinion

Re: L2TPv3 vs DLSW for Bridging VLANs

I have the following routers

Router 1

Interface                  IP-Address      OK? Method Status                Protocol

FastEthernet0/0            192.168.192.20  YES NVRAM  up                    up     

FastEthernet0/1            63.232.181.14   YES NVRAM  up                    up     

FastEthernet0/3/0          10.1.1.3        YES NVRAM  up                    up     

NVI0                       192.168.192.20  YES unset  up                    up     

Multilink88                65.102.24.102   YES NVRAM  administratively down down  

Router 2

Interface                  IP-Address      OK? Method Status                Protocol

GigabitEthernet0/0         10.4.52.10      YES NVRAM  up                    up     

GigabitEthernet0/1         172.31.150.2    YES NVRAM  administratively down down   

Serial0/0/0:0              unassigned      YES NVRAM  up                    up     

Serial0/0/1:0              unassigned      YES NVRAM  up                    up     

Serial0/1/0                unassigned      YES NVRAM  up                    up     

Multilink1                 65.102.24.134   YES NVRAM  up                    up    

I understand that I need to create a pseudowire-class  l2tp-auto entry, but would I do it on my g0/0 interface since that is  the vlan I want to extend from router 2? And would I create a simular  entry on router 1 FastEthernet0/3/0 since that is the vlan I want it to reach?  I appreciate all help.

Thanks
