Backup camera body?

I am going on a trip with my stuff, currently a D7100. Eventually, probably in the spring, I am going to get a D850 (which is why I posed in this FX forum)

The question today is, I am looking for a backup camera to have just in case I have an issue with my D7100, so bearing cost in mind, is a used D2X the best way to go? I don't really want to tie up a lot of money in a backup body, and D2X's are plentiful at $200-$300. Most of my lenses I will be using are my old ED/IF prime lenses from the 1980's (see my profile for a list)

I am guessing there is nothing else to consider in my price range?
