Question about 1986 Volkswagen Wagon Camper
Sounds like an impossible dream....and pricey....youd have to have a pwr steering pump mounted in the perfect position for alignment and a belt, probably not a space for another belt on the crankshaft..... high pressure hoses etc.... i dont see how that vehicle could be hard to steer being light in the front end.....grease the front end and steering at every grease fitting on it .... always have the vehicle moving, even just a little will help, before turning and that will make turning the wheel easier. OK!!

Short answer for an '86 is "yes."
It was a factory option so lots of them are out there.
In practice it is a real pain in the bottom to retro-fit as you need a lot of parts and they ain't cheap.
As mentioned above, the manual steering is really good on these so if you are having a problem, have it checked out and repaired. You will probably be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is in proper working order.
Stiff steering can be as simple as lack of lube in the rack to bad ball joints.
