Pole or no pole? That is the question.
Is a Frame Tent less sturdy? Is there less room in a pole tent? Which tent fits my needs: Financially? Dramatically? Overall Effect?
Most people do not know that;
---Every tent has legs, but not every tent has POLES.
---Tent Legs run around the periemeter of the tent.
---Legs are either wood or metal.
---Both Frame Tents and Pole Tents have Legs, but only Pole Tents have Poles. A traditional Pole Tent has exterior side legs every 10 feet, and center support poles every 20-30 feet.
In the picture (top left) you can see the poles in the center and dining space is lost. The benefit is the dramatic "High Peak" or "Circus" look and the price is generally less.
A traditional Frame Tent has no interior center poles, but has exterior side legs every 10 feet. However, new technology in structure tents now allows for larger frame tents to safely have exterior legs every 20 feet as seen here on the left.
The major benefit of this is an unobstructed view. In a Frame Tent, the entire square footage covered is USABLE, UNOBSTRUCTED space. Frame tents are ideal for wedding ceremonies as there are no poles to avoid.
