Did you ask the place that did the re-certification about getting new tanks next time around? They can probably get you exactly what you need and likely in a better quality than Costco. There are different levels of quality in all things sold, including propane tanks.
Propane tanks can be configured in an almost limitless number of ways, and you'll get exactly what you need working with a propane dealer who will set them up for you to fit your application. Even little things, like having the gauges & valves pointing the way you need them can make a huge difference.
More important to me in a situation like this is having a relationship with the local dealer. Not just because it supports them, but it supports you too. When something in your propane system goes awry, having an established relationship with them makes it much more likely that they'll go the extra mile for you to find that odd widget you need to get things made right.
