Two Routers, One Network

i currently have a network in place with a Router running ClearOS, unfortunately it doesn't support a VPN solution or you have to pay for that module. i do however have a Cisco RV042 router available from a prior network configuration that does support VPN's.

I want to keep the ClearOS box (made from an older PC with two NIC's) because it provides bandwidth throttling rules to all dhcp addresses, and can handle many clients than some household linksys. i have about 130 dhcp users and static addresses for all my switches.

what i want to do:
i have another site set up the same way and they too have an RV042 Router from the previous network configs. i would like to do a site to site VPN but create the VPN network on a different VLAN (VLAN 2, 192.168.x.x ).

im not quite sure how to make this happen since ive never done something like this before. as far as configuring the switches for Vlan2, its not a problem. Just the network topology as well as if there is a better way to do this is my question.

thanks everyone!
