A-frame from the front of the camping tent is a triangle, everyone in the Scout class to see the house account that belongs to such an ancestor, and now we often see the A-frame deformation is U-900. This type of account is usually designed to be relatively simple, lighter weight, some can be Free-standing, but the biggest drawback of A-frame is the intensity of the wind by the side of the wind dropped significantly, another drawback is the poor space, because the tent on both sides More inclined, the room three-dimensional space smaller. Modified A-Frame (MAF): U-900 is an example, the other is like a middle column to increase the strength and space, such as Eureka Timberline. Others such as MSR Ventana. Kelty Streamside also belong to MAF.
Now the most common tents, all of Rhino’s all camping tents belong to this category, including A350.U300.U400 are like this. The biggest advantage of this tent is to stand alone (free-standing), strong wind resistance, indoor space is more comfortable, but also because the roof is high, like a bowl, so sometimes also known as the yurts. The disadvantage of this account is the heavier weight. The general Dome is made up of two camps, which is also called Wedge (REI Half Dome), another three (SD Omega CD), four (MHW Trango), and so on, and even There are more. With the basic configuration of Dome, there will naturally be the emergence of Modified Dome, the change lies in the various manufacturers of ingenuity, such as MSR (formerly Moss) stormking multi-column design, SD Metero Light increase the third Camping column to increase strength and so on.
The basic shape of this account is a half circle before and after the composition of the pillars, do not cross each other, the more common is the tunnel account. Hoop’s composition is always low, can not stand alone (non Free standing), need to rely on the front of the nail or camp rope fixed to form the shape, but now there are Free standing form, such as Exped Venus. Hoop has many advantages, strength (because of low, small wind area), light weight, erected fast (just wear a good job column, both ends of a pull can) some of the more famous Hoop Hilleberg Nammatj camping tent.
The middle of a single pillar from the pillars of the shape of the pyramid, the use of a single layer of waterproof cloth, the advantage is light, the shortcomings of the weak strength, not suitable for bad weather. Some of these accounts also have flooring design.
