The design of this kind of tent is very similar to a dome tent. The only difference is distant is extended in the middle and it ends up resembling a tunnel instead of a dome. This tent is held up by a series of metal poles that create a round shape. This is very stable due to its structure and then stick. They also rely on a lot of attachment points because of how big it is. This gives you a lot of headspaces as well as more space than the normal tent. It is perfect for a group of campers or for a family.

This is a good choice because it is lightweight, the lengths of the poles are identical, and the width is reasonable so you can carry this in the trunk of your car. The downside is it requires specific techniques to pitch properly and it also tends to sag in the middle area. It also gives in to strong and high winds.

This is another one of the more modern options in the world of tents. It has an inflatable pole to lift the tent in position. That is a very different technique compared to traditional metal poles. You set this up by using an air pump and there are a lot of durable options as of today. Since there are no more metal or plastic poles involved, this is so much lighter and easier to carry. A single individual can set this up all by himself. The downside is you will need an air pump and the tent is also unstable when it is windy.

Teepee Tent

This type of tent has heavy cultural connotations as it was initially used by indigenous people all over the globe as their house. These are cone-shaped and they are propped up by a central support system. There are also guy lines for support. The only difference between traditional teepee tents and modern tents is the materials used. Modern teepee tents use weatherproof materials and metals instead of wood.
