You need a very sturdy rack for a trip like this.
My motojack rack (now ultimate MX hauler) has served me well for nearly 7 years, many of those carrying my xr400. Be sure and get the heavy duty model. It is very solidly built and works fine on the back of my SMB.
If you get a rail type carrier, I'd go with something that uses two hitch points.
Good luck and have fun.
