As a few people have mentioned, the standard/max towing of a CRV is 1,500 pounds. So, if you are going to use the trailer for a few bulky items that would be ok, but you're not going to be able to safely pile on tons of bricks and concrete and pull them home. However, it still may come in handy.

Before I bought my truck in 2010, I considered a Harbor Freight folding trailer to pull behind my wife's Santa Fe (2000 pounds towing). It would be cheaper than a truck, but you can rent the Home Depot or Menards truck a few times for the price of a trailer - and not have to store it. But, the trailer would let you keep the materials on it until needed (like bulk mulch) and not rush to unload the truck and return it to the store.
