They modeled "tent bell" after the Indian breed, using canvas rather than buffalo hides. In 1911, the first scout handbook was published showing 10 different types of tents.

After the end of World War II in 1945, the postwar economic boom sent Americans to retail warehouses and surplus army supplies, where they bought thousands of tents of various styles before heading out.

The first standalone tent was designed in 1959. It has wooden poles. Light metal trunks began to replace wood frames in the 1960s. In the 1970s, backpack storage tents were designed which sold 1 million units in just 10 years.

The first "tents for trucks" were developed in 1990 and had to be placed behind the pickup truck. Nowadays, these tents have been rapidly expanding with developments that make camping very satisfied.

Technological innovations offer more enjoyable experiences, and 3.2 million Americans have historically turned camping into tents to enjoy and remember. So, this was a short history of tent camping.
