I think first national tours went to major cities with subscription base sales. That was a guarantee of x weeks for y dollars in those lucrative markets. Plus the theaters were older and more uniform in size (probably built for vaudeville and broadway size) so sets could be moved from theater to theater.
Second tour would be for smaller cities with shorter runs so a smaller movable set for a few days or week run. Plus a lot of variety in size of stage and overall theater.

I assume a short run is grueling schedule so probably less seasoned actors are willing to do it.
