The towing capacity of your Honda CRV is likely around 1500 lbs. This includes the weight of the trailer. I would look for a light weight trailer. One that you can safely tow with your vehicle. I have one that is a 5x8, metal with 12" wheels. It works well for most things, light hauling, motorbikes, lawn tractors, etc.

But, there are big disadvantages to them.
First, the capacity is not that great. So you may have to watch the weight you load onto it.

Second, the wheels and tires are very cheap and wear out quickly. The good news is that you can get a wheel and tire for around $20.

Last, the hubs must be kept greased. I have had a hub failure even with proper greasing as these are also somewhat cheap. However, you can buy a kit called a "Bearing Buddy" and that will allow you to keep them well greased without too much effort.
