Can I assemble this product in the parking lot and use it immediately?
I am in transit and need a product like this to hold some of my luggage. Can I purchase this is the store and assemble it in the parking lot? How much time and skill is involved in putting it together?

Yes, you can assemble this carrier in less than one hour.
My wife assembled our cargo carrier, without my help. I only needed to tighten the nuts, after she assembled the carrier.
You will need a large rachet set and a wrench. The head of the bolts are fairly large, and you will need to hold the bolts with a wrench while you tighten the nuts.
I hope this helps.
You will need an 11/16" wrench, a 3/4" wrench and two fairly large adjustable wrenches. I found that a hammer was also useful for "adjusting" a couple of bolts. A 1/2 drive ratchet and sockets would make things easier in regard to the 11/16" and 3/4" bolts. Quite possible to assemble in the parking lot with those tools.
As long as you have the necessary tools assembly is a breeze. I used a couple of adjustable wrenches and socket sets and I was done in about 30 mins.

Yes if you have a socket set
