Travel tripod for 5D2

We'll be doing Route 66 and Highway 1 during May and June and I'll be taking a reduced kit of 5D2, 17-40L, 24-105L, 70-200L, 50 f1.4 and 1.4 EX2.  I need to get a tripod that will be light and compact (fit in check in luggage) yet be suitable for the 5D2 with one of the above lenses.

My initial thought was the Manfrotto MKC3-H01 as this fits the size and weight criteria, but I'm not so sure about the suitability for the 5D2 set up.

Any thoughts or other suggestions, nothing silly money as I already have two 'proper' tripods.

Thanks in advance.
