Sounds like I'm in good shape to stick with drum brakes. They seem to work well (although I've never pulled a trailer with discs so I have nothing to compare), and as pointed out the design is pretty simple. I thought discs would be pretty straight forward once installed, but it sounds like there are more potential things to go wrong. I think simple is good, especially given my towing frequency.
