I really don't want a prepackaged external drive, as I go through
drives pretty fast and would like this enclosure to last several
generations of drives.

I have had good luck with a couple of Western Digital My Book 3TB externals which are USB 2/3. I have even replaced a drive in a 2TB Western Digital enclosure so I'm sure you could do the same with the 3TB models. You can pick these up at Costco for $129.99. Can you build one for less than that?
