It will depend on a few things, weight, size, high or low profile, and if it has overdrive. More info would help. Looking at your profile you have a 25' Mallard I would assume that is a class c. Accounting for all the variables above I would say anywhere from 8-14 MPG.

Many years ago we had a Jamboree with that power train. We were probably shorter and lighter than your rig but averaged about 10 mpg. I installed a vacuum gauge and used it as a guide for throttle management and fuel economy.

A 360 in a class A would be an odd combo, unless this is a early to mid 1970's MH. What year is your coach? You may have a 440/727 combo.
Class C's had plenty of 360's, fewer 440's.

In another post he stated he has a '91 Mallard. Research on the internet shows some class A's were built with the small blocks and 727 on the oshkosh chassis. Yes I agree,this is an odd combo.
