Is two weeks in primary to long? I am going on vacation tomorrow and dont have a spare secondary carboy.Today is day 8 in primary. I wont be able to transfer it until next Sunday. I can rack it off the trub and put it in another plastic 6.5 gal pail but will that be to much airspace.

Just leave it in the primary. You can go as long as a month without suffering ill effects. If you're really that worried about it, the second 6.5 gallon fermenter will work just fine. Some people get excited about that dead space at the top of the fermenter...to me, it's no big deal.
