RBC and Barnett are both good quality and reasonably priced.

OEM!! Buy springs, steel, and friction. Replace it all. Should be around 200.00. Takes about an 1.5 hours total

I've had good luck with Barnett clutches in my Yamahas, but I needed to upgrade as the OEM didn't hold up well under stock power, nevermind when pulling a trailer.

You really just needed heavier springs then

I went from the diaphragm style clutch spring (stock) to the coil spring conversion plate, and used the Barnett fiber plates they recommended for heavy duty use. I've got this setup in both my Ventures (with about 30k on one setup) with no issues (one occasionally pulling a trailer, the other serving tug duty for a sidecar). Of course the stock setup got to 70-80k on each bike, so I'd be very surprised if I had any issues this early.

If you got 20k of hard use out of the OEM setup and have no reason to use something different, then yeah, I see no reason to go aftermarket.
