No idea about dispersed camping. I would guess yes but maybe some NL natives can clarify.

There are some rougher sections of the Trans Labrador Highway but having driven that across Labrador in a passenger I can tell you that it is possible. It's just what you're comfortable with.

There is a ferry that departs once a week from Blanc Sablon that could connect you with the rest of the North American road network:

The problem is that you're looking at a pretty far north latitude as you get into October when larger storms can occur in the North Atlantic so you want to keep that in mind. You can certainly luck out but I would focus on the first half of October and be departing the far northern part of the trip by the third week of October.

Thanks to all contributors. I’ve decided to hang out in Nova Scotia rather than tempt the weather gods. Plenty to see on the way there and around. Most stuff seems to remain open through October.

Florence should be history by the time I get there at least a couple of weeks from now.

I've used RVParkReviews to get an idea about weather in marginal seasons. Frequently people will comment on the weather in their reviews. Just click through the parks and scroll through the comments. Each review has a date at the top so it's pretty easy to scan for October.

Newfoundland is worthy as an entire trip in its own right! Not a place to rush through! Glad you have opted not to rush it this trip. So late in the season you would miss many of the things that made the trip special, such as icebergs and birds.
