But the RP's focusing is weaker, especially for motion towards the camera

The main limitation of the RP is the burst rate. I use Face + Tracking, and the focusing has been excellent. I shot our daughter's two Labs playing in the snow today, and it nailed almost every shot. They move pretty fast.

The 7DII is a great camera, and if you can keep the focus points on the subject it is excellent. OTOH, my RP tracks well all over the frame and almost never misses focus.

The RPs are so cheap that I would support the advice to just get one and keep the 7DII for the crop factor.
