These days, the tents are made of nylon fabric in which sometimes fiberglass or aluminum poles are used. There are mainly four types of tents named as A-frame tent, dome tent, cabin tent and the geodesic tent.

The most popularly used tent is known as the A-frame tent. These particular types of tent were first used by the scouts of America. In this you will find that it forms a triangle shape at both the ends and consists of two poles.
