RV082 Site To Site Redundancy

We're currently running two locations each with two internet connections (all static IPs).   The main location is running Server 2003 with a separate 2003 Terminal Server.  The remote site consist of 5 workstations (all XP Pro) using terminal services.

We purchased two RV082 thinking that the connection redundancy could solve periodic loss of internet connections.

The configuration we are attempting to implement would consisit of:
a) Both routers set to load balance
b) Configure 4 VPN tunnels between routers using all 4 connection possibilities MainA-RemoteA, MainB-RemoteA, MainA-RemoteB, MainB-RemoteB (gateway-to-gateway)

Is this configuration possible?
Is this the proper equipment for ensuring automatic internet failover? Or would you recommend different equipment?

I'll toss in my 2¢ worth here. Doubt this will work. When you create a tunnel you include the subnet of the remote site. Because the router does load balancing as well as fail-over, both configurations/ports are available at all times, and if they both contain routes to the same remote network/subnet you will have a routing conflict. I can see other problems auto-switching connections, but the basic routing issue I think rules it out.

"........I think rules it out." => With these routers.
Cisco offers some redundancy features, but I apologize I am not familiar with them.
