History Of Camping Tents

Camping was essentially a way of life for eons before it became our favourite activity. The tent is undoubtedly the most crucial piece of iconic equipment.

A U.S. Army officer designs the genuine predecessor to today's well-known shelter in 1855. He based his "bell tent" on Native American teepees, but instead of buffalo hides, he used canvas.

The first Boy Scout Handbook was published in 1911, and it features ten different styles of tents.

1945 - The war is finished, and the postwar economic boom leads tens of thousands of Americans to camping stores and army surplus stores to buy tents of various kinds before venturing out into the great outdoors.

The first fast-to-set-up freestanding tent is introduced by long-time tentmaker Eureka! in 1959.

Lightweight metal poles started to replace hardwood frames in the 1960s.

1970s - Eureka! steals the show once more with a backpack-storable tent that sells one million pieces in ten years.

1990 - The first "truck-tent," designed to be set up in the bed of a pickup truck, is released.

Owing to technology advancements that make camping more beautiful, 3.2 million Americans still go tent camping—a million more than RV trips.
